Recent circumstances have required us to embrace stillness - a virtue too often missing from our collective livelihood. Newfound appreciation for introspection, home rituals, and simple acts of care have inspired new approaches to expression and art making.
‘Still’ brings together the works of thirteen artists from around the globe who commonly discovered new creative inspiration from our imposed slower pace, highlighting the silver lining of solitude and the humble power of living in the present.

I tend to think when we ‘remember’ things, or think of moments in life, memories are a bit obscure, a bit unclear, we remember certain feelings, but perhaps not the tangible details of the moments. I try to represent that in my photographs. I don't intent to capture a moment to record the accurate details, but that very faded feeling that might linger.

Benoît Jeannet lives and works in Berlin Germany and Neuchâtel Switzerland. Benoît considers the studio as a laboratory and photography as a research instrument. His work is made up of images and protean objects that dialogue at the point where contrasts collide. Witness of an environment in which images overwhelm us, Jeannet functions as an operator trying to give form and meaning to this flow.

His career in photography began in weddings and quickly migrated over to fashion, lifestyle and travel. He moved from Chicago to Los Angeles where he was able to produce and shoot brand campaigns throughout LA. He now lives in New York City, working on commercial work as well as lifestyle brand work.
Carolyne Loreé is a photographer based in New York, NY.
Specializing in both analog and digital photography, her work focuses on portraiture, fashion and still life. Inclusivity is her most valued principal while creating art and collaborating with others. Keeping communication open and creating a collaborative environment where all feel seen, respected and beautiful is the goal of her process.
The NYC and Paris-based photographer and painter circumvented a traditional path to a career in the arts. She initially graduated with a biology/pre-med degree before moving to Paris to study the French language. Intending to stay for six months, Sharon remained in France for three years while completing a master's degree in biology and cellular physiology. This unique educational background lent Sharon an eye for abstraction. As she witnessed the cohesive nature of organic life, she felt drawn to the minute mechanisms of cells in isolation. For several years, Sharon applied this interest in interaction to her work in the medical field. After long days in laboratories, she sought solace in creative practice and began assembling sculptural still lifes to photograph. Soon her creative practice blossomed into a full-time career as her unique compositions resonated with a growing social media following. Now with over eight years of professional photography experience, Sharon sees a parallel between her biological and artistic work. Just as organisms depend on individual interactions between cells, Sharon’s sculptural still lifes emulate the organic— integrating disparate elements to compose an unexpected harmony.
Today, Sharon’s fashion photography and still lifes have captured the attention of luxury brands, with clients including Chanel, La Prairie, Trudon, Barneys NY, and Bergdorf Goodman. She has also worked with publications such as Architectural Digest, Instyle Magazine, The New York Times, Cereal, and Conde Nast Traveller. With a wide array of work— spanning fashion, travel, still life, and interior design— Sharon’s fine art and commercial photography are seen as indistinguishable. No matter her subject or medium, Sharon approaches each project as a study of shape and interplay, texture and tension.
Carolina Sartori (Venice, 1994) is an architect and photographer currently based in Milan. After her studies in Architecture (BA at IUAV in Venice, MA at Polytechnic of Milan) and different working experience worldwide (OMA, Rotterdam, SANAA,Tokyo), she started to explore the medium of photography as another eye through which see reality, within the potential of its reinterpretation. Her research is focused on the relationship between human and urban contexts through the investigation of spatial conditions. She works with projects of short series, reassembling them into new storytelling and visual diaries.
"My training as an architect sees me concentrate my images on the urban landscape, the forgotten places on the path to somewhere else. Places where the architecture is unremarkable or bland, and the details are time-worn or not precious.
I look for sundry minutiae ‘hidden’ in this urban chaos. I enjoy highlighting these often unimpressive details as new ‘heroes’ away from the confusion. My images are about slight nuances rather than grand gestures, a moment to revel in the simplicity of a shadow, a promising reflection, a crack or crevice where nature or humor breaks through, and the inevitable erosion, over time, and with use or misuse. This past year of 2020/ 2021 has reinforced this introspective approach and the need to be present and appreciate these super small ordinaries."
