Flat Lay Photographs Created From Found Household Materials –
Connecticut-based designer Kristen Meyer creates flat lay photographs on pastel backgrounds with precisely arranged vegetables, crackers, and other organic materials like rocks and leaves. The works are geometrically minded, like a recent design which created an isometric grid from sliced melon and kiwi or sliced cheese rounds that were transformed into a field of interlocking circles on top of equally sized crackers. All of her arrangements are shot in her house where she keeps a studio, however she often travels to whichever room of the house that the has best light. On the way she picks up various materials for her photographs, pulling inspiration from found objects.
“As far as how I find materials to experiment with, it varies a lot, I generally work with what I can find around the house, inside or out. It begins as a scavenger hunt of sorts, and then a challenge as I begin to build.”
