I love the way these photos straddle the border between artifice and nature. The compositions and narratives are compellingv—I feel like I’m witnessing important moments in the secret histories of objects. Have the lamps escaped? Are the globes’ intentions peaceful?

The dialog between the objects and their context is evocative—you can almost hear the crunch of snow beneath the lamps as the hop along, or the rush of water around the legs of the chairs. I’m going to come back to these images the next time I need to think about the interaction between a building and its context.
