This is an album cover I shot for a friend of mine who has an alternative music label. Â To be used as the cover art for a compilation of artists. Â We really wanted to evoke an emotional response from the viewer. Â I love Dutch 17th century still life paintings. Â The light was always so stunning in those paintings Â I wanted to use those paintings as the foundation from which to build this image. Â What we did to add our tweak was to integrate the human form into the image to disrupt the idea of the traditional image & painting. Â The idea of an alternate emerging from traditional forms of expression. Â This loosely fits with my friends label which is about disrupting the norm. Â To come at a subject from an alternative perspective and what that perspective does to change the future expectations and actions of the viewer.
