Simple, everyday objects have long been used in photography to create interesting images.
We commonly see them in still-life images, or juxtaposed in unexpected surroundings. But Czech photography Vlad Artazov has taken the idea of using simple objects to create striking images one step further with his Nails’ life series.
Using simple building nails, Artazov has recreated situations found in everyday life.
Some are rather steamy, others perfectly mundane, but made interesting due to their abstract nature.
Most of the images are in black and white, though some color photos are included in the series as well. Various other hardware and building tools make appearances too, including some nuts and bolts, a hammer, and a screw.
