Everyone loves lamps! Admit it, we’ve all been that guy in the lighting section of a department store, wandering about like a stoned moth. So when lamps are beautifully designed and beautifully shot, it’s kind of too much to bear. It’s no secret that we’re big fans of Jennilee Marigomen’s work (and her name) so imagine our joy when she sent through these utterly fantastic still-life shots that she took for Montecristo Magazine.
The lights are all contemporary models created by some of the world’s best up-and-coming designers, and Jennilee’s idea for the shoot was inspired by the objects themselves. “We wanted to play with distortion, blurred surfaces, and abstraction, a nice contrast to the smooth clean lines of industrial design,” she said. Beautiful.
