Inspiring Still Lifes

Still lifes are still alive and well...just in a new photographic way. The still life photographs by Burcu Avsar are intriguing because of the placement and composition of beautiful and random objects. These photographs are truly inspiring and each tell a personal story. Now I want to start my own collection of small and unusual objects. Who wouldn't love a notebook full of pretty charms?

These remind me of the work of Nick Bantock... I love his books and these photos. They both give an air of mystery to inanimate objects.

Gorgeous. I could peer at these for hours just absorbing object details.

This is a lovely post. I LOVE the roses in the motor oil cans. But, um, is that an eyeball in the last photo? Really? An eyeball?

I would love a notebook full of pretty charms. And I am now going to save every tin that comes my way so I too can have a beautiful still life!

Oh, these are just wonderful! Hope you had a great weekend.

Bri said...

Oh, I'm totally going to have to work on something like that. I dig.

They're beautiful! I think this is a great idea for using all the tiny things that tend to accumulate around the apartment - things that you can't bear to get rid of but that are just lying there.
