Photographs That Look Like Still Life Drawings

Cynthia Greig’s work is deceivingly simple, but that’s the point. You look at her pieces and think to yourself, “Ok, it’s just a still life drawing. What’s the big deal?” But upon closer examination you’ll see that these are actually photographs, not drawings.

Greig, a Detroit-based photographer, creates these unique photos by drawing crude outlines and shadows around the objects in the still life. Additionally, most of the objects have been painted so they’re just barely off white, which adds to the “still life drawing” effect. I’ve seen a lot of drawings that try to look like photographs, but this might be the first time I’ve seen photos that try to look like drawings

(Hat tip to Rich S. for telling me about Cynthia’s work. Thanks!)
