Corners-An Irving Penn Tribute

This is a series of food 'portraits' inspired by Irving Penn's famous corner portraits. It is an ongoing project that I work on whenever I find vegetables or fruit with interesting forms and visual possibilities.The restricted area of the corner and the way it frames the subjects underlines and emphasises their intrinsic forms and nature, it allows the viewer to see and appreciate the natural grace and interesting forms of the vegetables and fruits 'portrayed'.
