For Brazilian photographer Rafael D’Alo, memory fills in the gaps of a photographic moment. In his still life series Tropical Arrangements, D’Alo creates artful composition and interesting pairing of both edible and inanimate objects. His first series captures the mood and lighting of 17th century Dutch painting. In their slightly decaying state, fruit and flower echo said paintings that served to remind society of their impending mortality. In the following acts, D’Alo plays upon the theme of arrangement with balance and texture as key components to his story.
