Still life, stool and 30 seconds III

I was organizing my house during the lockdown in the UK and I found a lot of dried leaves and flowers left over, saved in my loft space. It inspired me to create the series which I called 'Still life, stool and 30 seconds'. I photographed the same still life compositions changing the setting on the camera and light in the studio using a long exposure. It refers to a different and strange time which probably everyone experienced during the pandemic time - especially the lockdown. The reality and life, which everyone got used to, changed into a completely non-identical form of existence.
