These aren't your boring fruit-in-a-bowl kind of still lifes; artist Dina Belenko's photographs are bursting with color, enchantment, and delicious sweets and coffee. Belenko says she believes "photographing things means making portraits of their soul," and, in her world, souls are apparently joyous and full of wonder.
Belenko sees the life in everything around her. A coffee cup becomes a magical device for the suspension of gravity. Cereal becomes the cosmos. An ice cream cone becomes a representation of the symmetry of the universe.
