How We Live by Stefanie Klavens
"I photograph the small-scale drama of everyday life, things we pass by countless times without stopping to give them a second thought or look. These are portraits of people through the places they inhabit, home and away from home, life captured as still life. I’m inspired by the seemingly banal; the mundane that hides subtle clues and hints about how our species lives. The everyday object possesses a talisman-like quality and forms the narrative of the human experience. The images are empty and uninhabited, yet one senses a human presence just out of reach."
