completely captivated by debbie carlos's work, i've spent the better half of this morning exploring her world. the above photos are taken from a still life museum in chicago and are part of a series she calls human nature. oh how the deep hues draw me in! to me, the saturated rich color palette help make the animals and their habitats come alive- they look like a dream in an early morning forest. to see the entire series, visit debbie's human nature series where you can also learn more about the project. i think she best sums it up with this statement:
"The murky quality of the lighting and the dark desaturated tones of the exhibits, convey a sensuality and romanticism at odds with the sense of stagnant death that lingers..."
you can also find large format posters of her work (including some of the human nature photos) in her lovely etsy shop. many are of vast sceneries that only feel appropriate in poster size. visit her shop, blog and website to join in my exploration of debbie carlos's beautiful work!
