  3. Ivanova probably made these photos by finding deformed fruits and odd objects, altered them in some way, then photographed them with low lighting.

    These images look really sad, probably due to the filter and low lighting.

    I haven’t really seen anything like this before, but these photos are really interesting to look at.

    I’m not really sure what I could do with inspiration from these photos.

  6. How do you think Ivanova made these photos?
    -By posing inanimate objects in poses to give them character.
    What emotions do you get out of these images?
    -The chess pieces give me a feeling of disgust, While the pear images are relatable, giving a sense of normalcy. The clock images are more of the horror type, and they we’re with humans instead of clocks, I’d be scared or grossed out.
    Have you seen anything like this before?
    -It’s kinda like those kid movies that gave personality to inanimate objects.
    How could you do something like this?
    -Using glue and my chosen inanimate object, i could pose them for scenes.
    What would it look like?
    -It would appear as a worse version of this, with a different object.

  7. I think that Ivanova could have gotten those materials from her house or from somewhere else and the photographer could have a background or a different type of background and edit them in Photoshop or in a different type of program. The emotions that I get from these photos are a sort of calm mood I don’t know why but I don’t get a nightmarish mood from these photos. No I have never seen these types of photos before but they look really amazing to me. If I were to do these photos I would get stuff that would be abnormal things that usually wouldn’t go together. I think mine would look okay but not as cool as Ivanova’s photos.

  10. Its obvious its in black and white. And finding the droopy fruit/ vegetables to get a depressing feeling from them. Its a sad and trapped feeling that I get from these photos. I have not seen anything like this before. I could get depressing photos from objects that are not its regular idea for the shape like this photographer choose to do. Also making it in black and white will help get more of a depressing feeling from it.

  13. She took a type of thing that has happened in history and made a piece of art from using some random stuff you find around the house.

    I feel real depressed by looking at these photos.

    No i have never seen anything quite unique such as these photos.

    Take something a person does and implement a household item doing it.

    It would mostly likely be something stupid looking and not good but most likely having a dog do something a human would do.

  18. the photographer’s creativity is really working hard in these images to use small objects to construct entire scenes and the black and white effect i just the cherry on top. and i get a lot of intrigue from these “small world” kind of pictures where the photographer uses things like paper clips to represent bigger things like people. and i could do stuff like this with like little army men to try and recreate a war or something along that thought.

  19. It looks like a lot of photo shop would be needed to create this look and each image. It’s a very sad and dreary look. Iv’e never seen anything like this before.
