According to Wikipedia, A still life (plural: still lifes) is a work of art depicting mostly inanimate subject matter, typically commonplace objects which are either natural (food, flowers, dead animals, plants, rocks, shells, etc.) or man-made (drinking glasses, books, vases, jewelry, coins, pipes, etc.)
Often photographers will carefully arrange objects in a contrived setting, meticulously control and monitor the lighting, and photograph the inanimate objects described in the above paragraph to create a still life image.
The women of f/4 Studio take a look a ‘found’ still lifes, perhaps offering a more loose interpretation to this widely accepted and appreciated art form.
