‚Art of Living‘ By Gray Malin

Known for his dreamy and somewhat surreal imagery, Gray Malin usually brings something unexpected and playful into natural landscapes.

„This series juxtaposes natural and man-made beauty and challenges the viewer to interpret the art of design anew.“
In „Art of Living„, fine-art photographer brings the mid-century design classic to the heavenly setting of a pacific island Bora Bora. The pieces from such prolific designers as Eames, Saarinen and Knoll float atop the mirrored platform handcrafted by local engineers. By setting a selection of archetypal modern furniture against the pristine landscape of French Polynesia, Malin disrupts the conventions through which we traditionally experience design. Speaking about his project, the photographer says: „To accentuate the form of the furniture, this series was photographed from a vantage point where Mount Otemanu presented a symmetrical backdrop. Staging highly stylized elements of interior design in an unexpected setting, this series juxtaposes natural and man-made beauty and challenges the viewer to interpret the art of design anew.“
