Paulette Tavormina, "Oysters", d’après W. C. H., 2010

Paulette Tavormina lives and works in New York City. Amidst the bustle that defines the city, she can often be found at one of the city’s many farmers markets searching for the perfectly imperfect flora that characterize her photographs. Her arrangements often recall the sumptuous detail of seventeenth century Old Master still life painters and serve as intensely personal interpretations of timeless, universal stories. With a painterly perspective reminiscent of Francisco de Zurbarán, Adriaen Coorte and Giovanna Garzoni, Tavormina creates worldly still lives.> Read more

Tavormina’s photographs are in museum, corporate and private collections and have been exhibited in Paris, London, Moscow, Lugano, New York, Los Angeles, Miami, Palm Beach, Boston, Palm Desert and San Francisco. Tavormina, photographs works of art for Sotheby’s and works as a commercial photographer. She has collaborated with The Fabulous Beekman Boys on three cookbooks, including the critically acclaimed The Beekman 1802 Heirloom Cookbook and recently photographed The Del Posto Cookbook. She has been commissioned by The New York Times and National Geographic Magazine, among others.  Previously, Tavormina was a prop and food stylist in Hollywood, her work seen on the silver screen in films such as NixonThe Astronaut's Wife and The Perfect Storm.
