Beautiful Decay Photographs by Peter Lippmann

Paradise Parking 14, photograph by Peter Lippmann

Peter Lippmann is a professional photographer who has commissioned his work for Cartier, the New York Times, and Christian Louboutin. But it's his personal work that is mesmerizing and haunting. Lippmann's images of rotten fruit against dark backgrounds are reminiscent of Renaissance still life paintings where the objects in the picture are imbued with jewel-like qualities. These photos capture decayed items in stunning clarity that transforms them into objects of beauty.
