Flowers, Fruit, Books, Bones

Johan Hagemeyer
1930s.

Flowers, Fruit, Books, Bones: Still Life from the Center forCreative Photography features over sixty still life photographs from the Center’s collection. While many of the works were conceived for a range of purposes outside of fine art, from advertising images to teaching aids, all make full use ofphotography’s ability to render rich detail. Visitors to the exhibition are encouraged to slow down and relish the pleasure of close looking.  To deepen the experience of visual contemplation, the photographs are paired with short pieces of text – both poetry and prose – that invite visitors into a space of rumination.
