Art of Arrangement: Photography and the Still Life Tradition
17 November 2012 - 10 February 2013, The National Media Museum, Bradford
Still life has captured the imagination of photographers from the early 19th century to the present day. When the first photographers adopted the still life genre, they inherited a visual tradition established in centuries of painting. It is a tradition full of lavish, exotic and sometimes dark arrangements that are rich with symbolic depth and meaning.
