Photographer: Becki Rutta's Series: From the Garden I

Becki Rutta's still-life Polaroids are reminiscent of Dutch Baroque paintings. Her series "From the Garden" (Series 1) displays a richly-colored palette, densely overlapping layers, and chiaroscuro lighting (wiki). Becki captures the life cycle of the plants from her garden in states of growth and decay against various backdrops. The resulting work is a series of sharp and well-framed Polaroids, drawing the viewer close to the intimate details of common plants and vegetables. Connect with Becki on her website and Facebook!
