Still Life Photography
"Natura Morta"

The Gift of ART

In this series of fine art photography ”Celebration of Life” I seek to capture beauty though common things that I love, such as flowers, fruits, seashells, antiques, and other collectibles I gather.

I desire to capture the beauty of short-lived things!

I find great inspiration in The Dutch Golden Age Still Life paintings that flourished in

the 17th Century as the result of the economic prosperity in northern Europe of that time.  

I am fascinated to observe that people throughout the centuries continue to value the same beautiful things that we admire on the canvases of the old masters.

With this series of photographs, I explore and create new still life impressions as the way to appreciate the common, yet wonderful things we enjoy every day.
