    Nancy Oliveri Photography

This project of staged still life photographs was inspired by the light and domestic compositions of16th Century Dutch and Flemish painting. It also references the tradition of early daguerreotypes and the Victorian tradition of post-mortem portraits. My previous work included unstaged images of wildlife in the Gowanus Canal and evolved into these staged studio still life.
