Still Life
Julia Sent

My most beloved subject is Still Life. I think about philosophy of perception. The object remains still; the interplay of shadows and light that create life will amuse and surprise you. I like to discover that invisible and strong connection between human emotions and things we owned, things we loved, all colors, shapes, patterns in our own personal layer of everyday life.

Simple things can be reflections of our desires, habits, hidden feelings and life stories. The ability to appreciate, to be amazed by the smallest fragments of our surroundings will lead to appreciation and understanding the world. I believe it is possible to show the beauty of things imperfect, impermanent, the beauty of things conventional and unconventional. This is my invitation to look at the overlooked in our daily routines, to appreciate the plain reality around us through photography.
