A Still Life
Canadian contemporary photographer Laura Letinsky is best known for her elegant but slightly off-putting images. Letinsky’s work is reminiscent of a Dutch Golden Age still-life, often a perfect replication of local produce, but presented as an act of realism – the aftermath of such perfection.
We chose this color photograph as the focal artwork for a Chicago concept store and cafe because of both the inherent subject matter, and the artist’s unique vision. We like that this print, while a true complement to the space and environment in terms of color, brings additional life to this already bustling restaurant.
