Modern still lifes

Robin Derrick, former Creative Director for British Vogue has a wonderful eye for composition and light. Last year he exhibited some of his very beautiful floral photography in London at The Old Train Depot in Battersea. The work takes its' inspiration from the still life paintings of Dutch artists of the 17th century. 

He collaborated with Nikki Tibbles of famed florists Wild at Heart, who created the magnificent arrangements. Have a look.....

The last painting is from Jan Davidsz de Heem, painted around 1660.
