Entry Description

This work takes its inspiration in finding the beauty of ordinary contemporary things we use and discard everyday while contrasting them with organic decay of natural objects. The photos are made from found trash and highlight the extraordinary amount of disposable items in our lives we use for an instant but then live on for years, while nature renews itself in a seamless, continual rhythm.

About Photographer

Laurie Frankel is an award-winning still life, children’s, lifestyle, food, and interiors photographer based in San Francisco. She has been known to tromp through swamps, bribe giraffes, charm distressed babies, and hang precariously from ceilings in order to get the right shot. Frankel’s experience as a creative director continues to shape both her graphic sensibilities and her collaborative approach to photography. Her imagery has been recognized by the International Photography Awards, Communication Arts, Graphis, Luerzer’s Archive, the APA, and American Photography, among others. But, most importantly, we think people leave their experience with Laurie with a sense of warmth, humor, and that the whole of the their contributions have created something far, far greater than the sum of their parts.
