Still life photography, more so than other types of photography, such as landscape or portraiture, gives the photographer extensive leeway and precise control in the arrangement of design elements within a composition. Still life photography is a demanding genre, one in which the photographers are expected to be able to form their work with a refined sense of lighting, coupled with composition and design skills. The still life photographer makes pictures rather than takes them.
Praxis Gallery presents photographic art that investigates the genre of the Still Life. Art work may explore classical to conceptual aspects of the still life, photographing object arrangements that intrigue, engage or entertain the viewer.
