Driven by her interest in “control, accidents, and contrivance,” Laura Letinsky is best known for her exquisitely composed still life photographs, redolent with ambiguity. Early in her career, she photographed couples in the intimacy of their own homes, creating sensual visual narratives about love and relationships. By the late 1990s, Letinsky stopped photographing people and replaced them with objects—a stained napkin, orange peels, half eaten bits of candy—that hinted at human presence. Keenly aware of the rich narrative possibilities inherent in still lifes and influenced by 17th-century Dutch still life painting, Letinsky crafts tabletop vignettes that suggest larger narratives, as she explains: “It’s this idea that the narrative has already occurred; the meal has been eaten, the cornucopia has been consumed, something has been consummated, and this is what’s left in the early morning light.”
