Photographer Jo Ann Callis Presents Eerily Addicting Compositions of Everyday Life

Photographer Jo Ann Callis Presents Eerily Addicting Compositions of Everyday Life

Nothing in particular about Jo Ann Callis' photos seems threatening, but something in her use of lighting and color gives her frames a beautifully menacing atmosphere. As she places goldfish swimming alongside green beans in a kitchen sink, sets a plate on fire, then presents us with alternate views of tabletops, we wonder as much as the parrot does in observing a boat in a bathtub. Her photographs are reminiscent of scenes from an old movie, and regardless of their occasionally strange subjects, are comforting to gaze upon.
