(Un)Still Life

I always enjoy checking out the exhibitions at the Brooklyn Public Library's central branch.  (Un)Still Life just went up and I especially enjoy the works by Justine Reyes' Vanitas collection.

"Taking inspiration from Dutch Vanitas paintings, these photographs incorporate personal artifacts within the traditional construct of still life.  Pairing objects that belonged to my grandmother with my own possessions speaks to the concept of memory, familial legacy and the passage of time."
