Fine art photography gallery PurePhoto and Farmer’s Daughter Hotel owner Ellen Picataggio—an avid art collector—recently collaborated on a custom photography installation by conceptual artist Matthew Carden.

LA’s best kept secret, this charming 60-room boutique hotel in Hollywood boasts world-class comfort food, a relaxed, unpretentious atmosphere, and best of all an art gallery spanning the property featuring work by local artists.

Carden painstakingly creates exotic worlds of miniature figures that live amongst food-based landscapes. The photographs line Farmer’s Daughter’s hallways, and are also included in Picataggio’s art box project, which features over 40 local artists; one per room.

Carden’s full body of work can be seen on PurePhoto, which represents over 300 additional photographers. PurePhoto’s clients include top interior designers and collectors, and the gallery specializes in printing large-scale works and custom installations. The PurePhoto collection offers open and limited edition photographs, which range from $200 – $15,000.
