Phebe Schmidt Creates Uncomfortable Still Life Compositions

Phebe Schmidt has cultivated an impressive professional portfolio which includes contributions to publications such as Dazed & Confused and ID. When it comes to her personal work, Schmidt has accomplished a distinct, surreal aesthetic that you won't soon forget.

Her images feature models who lay so still, it's hard to determine if they're real or mannequin, as well as colorful still-life compositions with a high-fashion flair. In one particularly creepy shot, a model-mannequin wears a plastic bag over her head, gazing through it with a deadened look in her eye.

Though immaculately orchestrated, the images appear stagnant; there's an absence of movement that is more than a little unsettling. However, it is this discomfort that adds so much intrigue to Schmidt's work.
