Still Life with Sharyn Cairns

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.
