An awesome series exclusive from Diana Scherer, who is amongst a group of amazing Dutch photographers as part of Still/Life which opens at Foam, Amsterdam tomorrow.
“Still/Life presents various forms of contemporary still life. The show also charts developments relating to photography as a medium and presents an overview of the current climate in autonomous photography. Some have used photography to produce tranquil images, others have used the tranquillity of the subject to demonstrate the flexibility of the medium. Here the photographer connects with other forms of art, such as video, sculpture, performance or installation art. Artist duo Lernert&Sander, for example, made a three-dimensional still life of musical instruments that can never again be played. With Still/Life Foam challenges today’s young generation of photographers to produce surprising new interpretations of a classic theme.”
