This similarity can be seen in the photographer's technique of closing right in on her subject and using a close up frontal view, tight framing, an absence of décor and context, direct light and a print with strong contrast, to produce a distinct and accentuated image that is both spectacular and stark. This minimalism is accompanied in the work shown here by a composition centred on one unifying element – whether a basket or a vase –giving the whole image the density and appearance of a single large object.
