Our penchant for order and symmetry would never allow us to bypass the still life photography of Justin Fantl. Fantl, a commercial photographer, finds personal creative expression in, among other things, obsessively arranging mundane objects—like vitamin capsules and folded paper—into beautifully balanced compositions of color and shape. By limiting his color palette to monochromatic elements and backdrops, Fantl goes out of his way to give us the illusion of flatness; which is why we may be forgiven for mistaking his meticulous choreography for digital creativity—and delighting in finding that we’ve been so artfully fooled.
