I've come to enjoy closeup or "macro" photography for the creative possibilities as much as the ability to see fine detail in small objects. And like unravelling a fine musical composition or wine, I've discovered that by viewing these beautiful objects more closely, nuances spring forth that previously had remained hidden.
This current series began with a study of strawberries, kiwis and melon during 2003. I've wanted to continue this series for some time, but the lighting setup and the subject selection took some time and planning. The goal was to find fruits and vegetables that would have a colorful, translucent quality when thinly sliced, and present patterns than would not have been discovered otherwise.
