Life of the Party

Life of the Party is photographic series referencing 17th century Dutch still life paintings in both style and content. By using contemporary objects associated with luxury, wealth, life and death in conjunction with the rich and dramatic lighting styles shown in dutch vanitas, I recontextualize vanitas while still keeping the style of the orignal greats.
