Still life 5 photo contest
Still life photography owes much to the tradition of painting. The beautifully crafted still life paintings found in museums are records of an intense experience of light, form and colour.
Still life photography concentrates on these formal properties and has attracted some of the most influential photographers of all time. The images of early masters of the art such as Edward Steichen, Edward Weston, Andre Kertesz and Minor White still look ‘modern’. In the commercial sphere the lavish attention to detail in the work of some food photographers, for example, continues this tradition.
By crafting something that is more than a picture ‘of’ something, a good still life can evoke emotion, playfulness and reflection. The abstract quality which sometimes enables the viewer to experience form and space before seeing ‘objects’ can challenge the usual associations of the camera and the tangible world.
LPA is delighted to honour this long tradition. We encourage both classic styles and new ideas which may stretch the notion of ‘Still life photography’. Images can be studio set-ups, found objects photographed in-situ or digitally manipulated creations. We are expecting to see a beautiful gallery. Dig through your collection and find those gems!
