The Seattle-Based Photographer Turns Fun and Games into Elaborate Balancing Acts
There's a playful spirit in the work of photographer Amanda Ringstad. With bright colors and an array of shapes, textures, and materials, her photographs are defined by spontaneity and open-minded experimentation.“Playing and making mistakes is crucial for growth,” she says.
Ringstad’s still-life photographs are made using mostly second-hand materials—“I hate how much waste can be involved in a shoot”—and works freely with fruits, vegetables, and other organic matter. With dramatic lighting and a broad palette, her pieces range from subtle and simple to dramatic and tense.
