Suzanne Saroff works seem to play with the basics of photography as a visual medium. Common foods lie in what would be mundane still lives were it not for the glasses and containers of water that distort them and create interest in the image while never robbing them of their simplicity.
The images make use of bold colours and fragments of light dance across the canvas giving us new way of seeing the everyday. The distorted objects remind us of the actual shape of the object and the multiple ways that we could look at it. The viewer is forced to confront the idea of the 2D representation of a 3D object.
In a world of digital imagery, the ‘imperfect’ view of the object is a welcome escape from the perfect as the way we see these objects seems almost flawed. An unusual look at the usual.
