Still-life photographer Liz McBurney‘s whimsical series of images featuring pieces of processed meat was “inspired by the patterns and textures in processed meat and how similar it is becoming to man-made fabrics,” she says. The work began as a personal project, then led to an assignment from the weekend edition of The Guardian in June to shoot photographs for an article about the race among scientists to produce artificial meat in the laboratory.

Still-life photographer Sam Kaplan is known for creating striking designs from humble, disposable objects. For his latest direct-mail promo, which he mailed out over the holidays, Kaplan used party blowers. “I wanted to do something graphic and precise but somehow celebratory as well,” says the photographer, who is represented by Candace Gelman.
PDN wishes all our readers a very happy, peaceful 2013.

Houston-based photographer Cara Barer photographs outdated, abandoned and obsolete books and magazines—but only after transforming them into sculptural objects of beauty. Coiled and crumpled, they segue into a considered commentary on the changing role of libraries, society’s relationship with how it accesses and values knowledge and, in a technologically advanced world, her work questions the future of the book itself. Additional photographs by Cara Barer can be seen and puchased as part of Klompching Gallery‘s Print Room in New York City.

Marcel Christ is a highly successful still-life photographer. However, there is rarely anything still in his photographs. His subjects move, jump and fly. By experimenting with different materials and techniques, he creates original shapes and structures. In his “Clouds and Powder” series, the materials are often unpredictable. He brings his education in chemical engineering to bear in creating unpredictable moments.
