Still Life


Still Life is a series of unfolding photography books by Canadian artist Steven Beckly. Through a multiplicity of images that includes intimate snapshots, still lifes, portraits and landscapes, Beckly discloses a visually promiscuous eye that searches for intimacy within the multivalent complexity of a life. In Still Life, Beckly’s images inhabit the form of unbound books. Loose and rearrangeable, each book invites the viewer to shuffle its pages to form interrelations amongst its images, relying on the viewer’s subjectivity to shape its meaning.
