I have a thing for still lifes. Perhaps because they’re so rich in character, and my imagination scuttles to dreams of unique, textured, layered tales. And I really, really love them in stark shadow and valorous contrast. If any of this appeals, you will love Christina Lane.
Anders Schønnemann is a Danish photographer based in Copenhagen. I discovered his interior work in Kinfolk, but after searching his portfolio online I fell utterly in love with his travel series.
The phrase ‘still life’ conjures up such fond memories for me. It takes me back to art practicals in high school, where I dried out mielies in the weeks leading up to it to create texture and a notion of abandoned abundance. In my mind, still lifes are all about the wrinkles and layers and sustenance and… fun. Sharyn Cairns, a world renowned Australian photographer, takes the nostalgic idea of still life and brings it to a beautiful, breathtaking photographic reality.
