Still life has inspired photographers throughout the history of the medium. The form, developed throughout centuries of painting and visual art, is full of striking imagery and dark symbolism, focusing on decay and the fleeting nature of life.

Featuring works by some of the most celebrated practitioners of photography, Art of Arrangement investigates the photographic still life through both classic examples and works that challenge the definition of the genre.
