Rotten Bread from the still-life series Nature Mortes by Joachim Lapôtre, 2006, France. 15 x 23 inches. Limited edition, signed.

Rotten Bread is a modern day still-life depicting the impermanence of things by showing a molded bread and a dried clementine under a beautiful Flemish light.

This series brings the nobility of classic painting to contemporary photography. It is a conversation between the past and the present, photography and painting.

Joachim Lapôtre was born in Paris in 1978. 
Early in his career Lapôtre pioneered motion graphics for the web, contributing to the foundation of the the first websites for luxury brands in France. In 2002 he was invited to present his auto-composing music website, BPoeM, at the Centre Pompidou, and the following year his work with contemporary sound led to a collaborative performance at Venice Biennial. The Great Escape, an ecological tale, also garnered attention at the Musée d'Art Contemporain de Lyon in 2004.

Many embraced Lapôtre’s photographic still life series, Natures Mortes. The first showing of Rotten Bread at the Grand Palais in 2006 brought about world-wide exhibitions and publications to follow. In 2013, McDo was part of a year-long exhibition at the Alimentarium Museum in Switzerland alongside the work of great masters in art history. 

Lapotre has forthcoming projects in design.
