About the artist
Ivana Vranjes Field is currently a photographer in the tri-state area. She lives in Mercer County and graduated from TCNJ. She is a self-taught photographer and was recently inspired to start up writing poetry again after taking many years off. Working on film sets was her inspiration behind taking up photography. Seeing the shots being set up and creating the mood within a scene, was very beautiful to watch and very intricate in its own sense, which pushed her towards purchasing a camera and giving it a go. She has earned some IMDB credits for previous independent film work, and currently she enjoys reading books, studying the human mind and the human experience, art, more reading, and a lot of traveling.
Here’s what Ivana says about the inspiration for this photograph: “I was born in Bosnia, and this is a coffee grinder my great-aunt used last year when I visited. I just find there to be a beautiful simplicity in how people used to live. Now food is so processed and everything is factory made, that it just makes me truly appreciate the sense of human survival through the basic human needs, and the tools they used, and still use.”
