Unlike the ‘Still Life 1’ the ‘Still Life 2’ portfolio hosts ‘found still life’ as opposed to studio based compositions. Found still life is mainly composed of how things were discovered with perhaps a few additions and arranging.
Most of the images featured in Still Life 2 were taken as part of my role as a feature writer for Vintage Explorer and Antique Explorer magazines. My articles mainly featured the darker or more surreal collections and their collectors. In this role I was constantly surprised and never really sure what would be the next thing I would find or be shown.
Collectors could be both enthusiastic and cautious as they wheeled some of their strangest and bizarre treasures. Many items would have a story to regale or additional. During my ventures I learnt how to shrink a head, why skulls were carved, what the easiest animal to taxidermy is, how large a fur ball from cow could be and many more useful nuggets.
