What image comes to mind when you read the word still life? For many, it’s likely to be a bowl of fruit or a classic European painting. However, photography allows us to push these old-school boundaries, providing new perspectives on everyday objects.

Whether it’s the beauty of a single leaf or an arrangement of cherished objects, check out the video below to learn more about the many ways to approach a still life.

Looking for more inspiration? Stop by the museum to check out iconic still lifes by photographer Irving Penn in Irving Penn: Beyond Beauty. And while you’re there, be sure to check out MOPA’s library to explore the topic through over 20,000 titles dedicated to photography.
