Biography

Paulette Tavormina (born 1949 in Rockville Centre, New York) is an American fine-art photographer who lives and works in New York City. Tavormina is best known for her series, Natura Morta, which features photographic imagery inspired by 17th century Dutch, Spanish and Italian Old Master still life painters.

She studied at the International Center for Photography in New York in 1986, and at the Santa Fe Photographic Workshops, from 1995 to 2000. Paulette Tavormina's photography is much more than just 'natura morta'. Deriving from a set of influences that owes more to the art of the seventeenth century than that of the present, Tavormina's work takes precedent from the Golden Age of still life painting.

Sometimes spending an entire week on the meticulous arrangement and photographing of her compositions, Tavormina fastidiously pulls together the visual and symbolic connections between quotidian objects to produce images of powerful emotional resonance.

A largely self-taught photographer, Tavormina was previously a prop and food stylist. Her work has been exhibited by galleries in Paris, London, New York, Los Angeles, Boston and Chicago, and is held by museums including the Alimentarium, Musée de l'Alimentation, Vevey, Switzerland; Norton Museum of Art, West Palm Beach, Florida and the Snite Museum of Art, Notre Dame University, Indiana. She lives and works in New York City.
