I have chosen to base my still life on the ideas captured by Nigel Shafran’s Washing Up project. Rather than limited my scenes to post washing up, I have chosen to show the spaces recently vacated by my wife. These still life scenes are both dynamic, in that they are created by use not by staging, and representative of the immediate life of my wife. They represent how the environment is shaped by her, and in some way, how I am impacted by her. All of the images are taken with a Fujifilm X100V, set to replicate Astia film stock.
