inspiration: Joachim Froese

I just came across the work of Australia based artist Joachim Froese and my head is spinning. I haven't had such an urge to shoot since I can't remember when. Looking at these gorgeous triptychs has me longing for my 4x5 camera. Her images are stunning and the motives behind each project seem authentic and sincere. My favorite triptych photographer is still former MassArt professor David Hilliard but Joachim's work is closer to my personal aesthetic and approach to still life.

I'll certainly keep you posted if I do decided to dust off the old field camera and satisfy this urge.
