Photographer Captures Ordinary Objects In Clever, Meaningful Ways

Connecticut, US-based Kevin Van Aelst reimagines and reassembles the little, mundane things in our daily lives, and turns them into mysterious notions of life and existence with his photography compositions.

“My artwork is an attempt to reconcile my physical surroundings with the fears, fascinations, curiosities, and daydreams occupying my mind,” he wrote in a statement.

“The photographs and constructions consist of common artifacts, materials, and scenes from everyday life, which have been rearranged and reassembled into various forms, patterns, and illustrations.”

“The images aim to examine the distance between where my mind wanders to and the material objects that inspire those fixations. Equally important to this work are the ‘big picture’ and the ‘little things’—the mundane and relatable artifacts of our daily lives, and the more mysterious notions of life and existence. This work is about creating order where we expect to find randomness, and also hints that the minutiae all around us is capable of communicating much larger ideas.”
