Jimmy Salmon

The fine art photography of Salmon’s channels the still life paintings of 17th century Dutch masters. He carefully arranges his tablescapes with the requisite fruit, wine glasses, folded napkins and tableware. Then lit with a strong side light and dark shadowed background the shutter is opened. He incorporates the momento mori elements – a burning candle, an open pocket watch. The time-worn signifiers are there and they are as captivating and mysterious as they were four centuries ago. Prices range from $50 – $400.
