Ellen Jewett makes incredible sculpture which may find its origins between mythical children’s books and horror stories. Her animals are elegant and meditative, but appear to be dissipating before our eyes. Jewett is inspired by her rich background including experience in anthropology, medical illustration, and exotic animal care. These passions are seen clearly in her devotion to biology, peacefully dissecting her characters and merging them with their natural environments.
Michael Penn - Philadelphia 471 In this photo the aperture was low to create a depth of field. It has a bokah effect where the background is blury, creating a sharp, focused effect on the phone. The shutter speed I imagine was on a low setting, capturing the movement in the background therefore inhancing the stillness and mystery of the abandoned phone.
