A Special Day With Tara Sellios - Impulses I

Death has always possessed a significant presence within the history of art, ranging from altarpieces to the work of the Dutch still life painters. Manifesting melancholic themes with beauty and precision, as these artists did, results in an image that is seductive, forcing the viewer to look, despite its apparent grotesque and morbid nature.

This particular featured series, “Impulses”, was shot with an 8x10 camera and is based on the concepts of love and death, as well as attraction and repulsion.
