New work from my personal project photographing antique bottles.
Recently I was able to work with a close friend and talented stylist Ewere Asuen. She was inspired to do a story on shapes and this the result above is our collaboration.
I was inspired by the similarities in both of these objects and wanted to represent them in a way to mirror each other. The image on the left is of antique blackening bottles dating back to the 1800’s. The image on the right is of present day Tom Ford Cologne. The colors and shapes create a lovely diptych. I often find myself shooting imagery in sets of two and threes.
The outside panels were removed and lastly the key board. Revealing the inside of this late 1800’s Hardman New York Piano. A piece of art in itself.
A year ago we had a piano relocated from our apartment to my sisters new home. The piano needed to be disassembled in order to be moved. I had the unique experience of seeing all the mechanics that are used inside of the piano. These are a few shots of what piano keys looks like when taken out of a piano.
This is one of my first images in my ongoing personal project of photographing antique bottles. The bottle and flowers were a gift for my Jenny on Valentines day. It made its way onto set before being displayed on her nightstand.
This is a behind the scenes look at my still life photography set for one of my first images in my ongoing personal project of antique bottle photography.
