Still lifes can be fun too.

Categorised as ART., PHOTOGRAPHY.

We have a dirty little habit of posting loads of photos of people up on mint, which is fine because people do interesting stuff – like getting homemade Bart Simpson tattoos or doing the crab walk naked, but just to prove we’re not all about the homo sapiens here’s a selection of still life snaps from Argentinian photographer, Germán Paley.

Germán gave us a brief summary of his life so far; “I’ve spent three decades already in this existential dimension: the first decade; I tried tae-kwon-do and I got my two front teeth kicked out, football, because my father wanted, and roller skating, because I needed to. Also I did drawing and keyboards, but I didn’t end up doing too much with them. From my 10s to 20s I enjoyed my adolescence free of pimples and my hair grew longer until became a mane. I studied Japanese at high-school because I always wanted to go to Japan, then in my early 20s I won a scholarship that finally took me to Japan. I found the love of my life and I didn’t let him go. Oh, I also got my diploma as an English-Spanish translator.”

My old flat-mate put a bird out of its misery with a rock once. It's a shame he didn't have a mace because it took a really long time.
