Dese'Rae L. Stage's Profile
Dese'Rae L. Stage is a New York City based photographer who makes pictures of people who make life worth living. Executed in bold color and high contrast, the majority of her work centers on musicians and the live show experience. Her images address music as emotional catharsis and, in many cases, isolate the artist as a singular, untouchable figure, in much the same way as fame itself. In addition to photography, she has interviewed several of her personal heroes, including Tori Amos, Tegan and Sara, and Amanda Palmer.
She is self-taught, and also holds a bachelor's degree in psychology from East Tennessee State University, where she studied various aspects of suicide/self-injurious behavior and creative writing. She has extensive crisis intervention training, having completed the QPR Gatekeeper and Suicide Intervention Specialist training and ASIST programs…
