‘Still Life’

‘Still Life’ is a series of images that questions our relationship with death.

Taken in a crematorium and burial church on the outskirts of Edinburgh in the UK, this series of still lives and interiors documents the symbolism that can be found in mundane objects of the everyday, objects that reflect the relationship between our daily life and the somewhat unspoken mysteries of death.

These images of forgotten erasers and half used pencils, cheap plastic clocks, wilting pot plants and lone hoovers in empty chapels make a humble attempt at expressing the meaning that these everyday objects take on when viewed in a location of transcendental existences, expressing to the viewer a simple wonderment at the beauty of being.
