Beef jerky and ear plugs unite to striking effect in Dave Geeting's photographs

Posted by James Cartwright,

When he’s not taking photographs for Bloomberg Businessweek or W/ —-Projects David Brandon Geeting spends his time creating still lifes that seem to have no context or explanation. His grouping of objects occurs purely on the basis of their aesthetic compatibility, placing lighters on tinfoil, mobile phones on brightly coloured card and a cat on a marble surface. In spite of this absent context David’s Images are visually striking, breathing life into otherwise superfluous articles, like ear plugs, chew toys and beef jerky (beef jerky IS superfluous). If you think you’ve seen still life like this before, you may have seen something similar, but David’s style is entirely his own – who else could pair slices of cabbage with a plastic bag and make it look this good?
