Plates

To demonstrate different departments of the hardware store Didyk Pictures came up with the idea to present them as several plates with different hardware objects on top of them, served in a restaurant manner.

My work would like to return a purity and artistic photo style, to give people a sense in museum and gallery, when it appears in a clean background like white pages or walls.
