Still Life

Trompe-l'œil, in English as trompe l'oeil,  (French for 'trick the eye', pronounced) is an art technique involving extremely realistic imagery in order to create the optical illusion that the depicted objects appear in three dimensions, instead of actually being a two-dimensional painting.
Although the phrase has its origin in the Baroque period, when it refers to perspective illusionism, use of trompe-l'œil dates back much further. It was (and is) often employed in murals. Instances from Greek and Roman times are known, for instance in Pompii. In seventeenth century  Dutch artists branched out and revived the ancient Greek still-life tradition of trompe l’oeil, particularly the imitation of nature, which they termed bedriegertje (“little deception”).
Studying the history of still life paintings, I was extremely interested of this style and try to create it with photography. I take photographs of still life compositions and then edit and modify them in my digital dark room following the style.
