Still life can be a portal to a personal kind of history. In some ways it’s very intimate: the objects chosen by the Photographer  reveal what they consider to be either of social or cultural importance, or of personal value to them.

In this Still life I let my imagination get away from me. The still life it is a tradition full of lavish, exotic and sometimes dark arrangements, rich with symbolic depth and meaning. The first photographers adopted the still life genre, they inherited a visual tradition established in centuries of painting.

Still life (or Vanitas) paintings communicated a moral or religious message. They particularly emphatised the shortness of life and the inevitability of decline and death. Many objects had complex allegorical or symbolic meanings. These were found in common motifs such as falling petals, decaying fruit. In  these still lifes I was inspired by the fall, I was arranging objects and traditional motifs to create visually pleasing arrangements. My intention was to  test the possibilities of photography through experiments of composition, framing and light; producing  photographs that have an enduring influence on contemporary work. There is an inextricable link between photography and light. Photography relies on light to illuminate the subject and to create the image. Here, the effects of light and shade are the main element of each composition. Artificial light is manipulated and captured so that its changing nature becomes the main focus of the photograph. In  these still lifes I  used conventional arrangements where  objects are carefully selected and ordered to create a visually pleasing or meaningful image.
