Over two and a half decades, Laura Letinsky has engaged extensively with still life photography to reframe neglected fragments of daily life in elegant ways.
Presenting images from Hardly More Than Ever (1997 – 2004) and Ill Form and Void Full (2013), the visual narratives composed by the Canadian artist and educator question the construction of images and spaces with subtle hints of human presence.
