These beautifully arranged, lit and photographed still-lifes of tiny found objects are sublime! There is so much to look at and discover, so much awe and beauty in these tiny overlooked objects. There is an 'Alice in Wonderland' sensibility to this for me.. not just because of the scale, but the surreal imagery: With a nod to such a traditional art genre, at first glance these photos feel 'familiar' but as I look closer, I am seeing 'unfamiliar' objects in such a setting. Yet, as I look again, I realize they are in fact very familiar objects...just ones I never really looked at before. -Hava Gurevich — Artist, reviewer, gallerist

While a Macro Still Life often fits into the palm of my hand, the final photograph can be up to five of six times the original size. A tiny berry might be the size of a baseball. (AA Battery in photo for scale.) Click to see the final image.
