Suzanne Saroff is an art director and pro photographer living and working in New York. Her latest project started as an idea to embellish the food she photographs by using glass objects or containers filled with water to play with lights and shadows. After that, she expanded the series to include other everyday objects focusing on flowers and people.

Saroff was enthralled as a child by everyday visual illusions she regularly came across, and this obsession followed her into adult age, defining her art style. She loves to transform the subjects in front of the camera into beautiful, contemporary and deformed still lifes she calls “compositional waltz”.

She relies on tools and techniques such as reflection, directional light, and colors to provide everyday objects with an alternative visual expression so that they become more than a singular version of themselves.
