The historic tradition of the still-life has shifted through time, from ancient drawings in Egyptian tombs for the after life to the long popular theme in western painting. The photograph of a still-life adds a new layer to this history. For Sameshima the photograph is precise, but the artist's intent is powerful influence.

Explore the theme of still-life, see the show and meet the artist.
