Michelle's work has an interesting relationship to still life. She uses many of the formal conventions of the field in terms of staging objects and birds, but the work has both a forensic and a personal quality. Here, she photographs her grandmother's minks and china set, as well as her own childhood stuffed animals.

This exclusive piece was created for Gilt members in partnership with Art & Advisory.

Material: Photograph

Origin: United States

Michelle Elzay's thoughtful photographs employ many of the formal conventions of still life, but the results have both a forensic feel and an intimate appeal. Here, she shoots her grandmother's minks, a china set, and her childhood stuffed animals. Hoot is a take from another series, in which she photographed a group of birds one after another, as to let each's individual personality shine. All of Elzay's photographs are printed on archival Ilford silk paper; each arrives signed, numbered, and with a certificate of authenticity.
