When I was studying photography, my interest was in creating photographs that were painterly. Painting has a language all its own which is not easily referenced strictly through the unflinchingly straightforward lense of a camera. So clearly I’m obsessed, in love and green with envy over this guy’s work:
Photographer Nick Knight developed this body of work over a 10 year period by taking large scale photographs, inspired by 16th century still life paintings, and exposing the prints to heat and water during the printing process. The results leave me both in love and in envy.
Welcome to Like a Spark! My name is Elizabeth and I am a prop & craft stylist in New York City. I’m a maker by nature. I get excited about and inspired by so many things in this big, wild world. I spend most of my days making something… making pictures, making things for making pictures, dreaming about making things for pictures or making things just because. My hands, my head and my heart are always in motion!
My hope for Like a Spark is to create a place for compiling and sharing– compiling inspirations, thoughts, and ideas; sharing things that make my heart skip a beat with excitement, projects I’m working on, and all sorts of other curiosities that I encounter on this big adventure of mine. I would also like to share my creative process when I can, and provide how-tos for recreating things that I’m making.
I hope you enjoy my blog, it’s very nice to meet you!
