ConceptEuropeFeaturedThe ordinary by Lotta Lemetti

For me creating still life compositions is a form of self-exploration. The creating process is an intriguing and almost devotional journey through my mind. Through predilections in aesthetic decisions such as subject matter, color and composition the work reflects who I am, where I come from and what I have experienced.

For me creating still life compositions is a form of self-exploration. The creating process is an intriguing and almost devotional journey through my mind. Through predilections in aesthetic decisions such as subject matter, color and composition the work reflects who I am, where I come from and what I have experienced.

I am fascinated by how much beauty exists in an ordinary thing such as a piece of toast, if looked at it in a certain way. Through photography everyday objects can be given a different kind of visual charge that provides them with new imaginative possibilities beyond their everyday functions. The fundamentals of my photographic work: the use of light, color and and empty space are distinctly present in this series, as well as my desire to contemplate the smaller things around me in new ways. I’ve drawn a lot of inspiration for this work from the photographs of Laura Letinsky and Uta Barth.

To me the meditative process of creating these images was as important as the end result. Starting with a blank white table as an empty canvas I began to create shapes and forms exploring them and appreciating the beauty of my subject’s unique qualities. Slowly shapes transformed into arrangements and after close observation I chose a certain feature for each food ingredient – revealing that quality became my starting point and the core of each image.

With the series The Ordinary I want the viewer to share my sense of wonder and joy in the ordinary objects of everyday life. Today most of us are overwhelmed by the load of information that swoops over us in a daily basis. What easily happens is that we loose the attention span required to really see and investigate the surrounding world. There is no time to let your imagination run free. I want my images to serve as a gentle reminder of the importance of daydreaming and even being bored occasionally. These vital concepts for creativity and overall mental wellbeing have somehow turned toxic and are thought of as being unproductive thus a waste of time. I want to encourage my audience to slow down from their hectic lives to a more tranquil pace in which they are able to fully see and receive the beauty and peculiarity of this miraculous world we live in.

DodhersResilience in the creative process: how can we feed it?

We live in a technologically advanced but emotionally primitive world; a world in which we often keep the feeling and the living totally at a distance which, instead of mutually supporting and helping, they hinder each other. However, we must not forget that we will be much more resilient, the closer we will be able to keep our feeling with our living. When we take a photograph, so when an artist creates, consciously or not,...
