Denise Scicluna is a young photographer from Malta whose work—unlike most still life photographers'—doesn't make you want to slowly pluck out every single one of your eyelashes out of sheer boredom. She has a knack for noticing the unnoticeable and utilizes her unique brand of texture and color (wholly Mediterranean in their appearance) that gets you staring at them, wondering what the subject is, for so long that you'll start seeing those trippy white spots and get all dizzy.
That's not all she does, though. Denise also shoots fashion editorials and bands, and takes fantastic pictures of old ladies—a subject I have a particular soft spot for.
