My love affair with fruits and vegetables began after college when I traveled to a farm in a far exotic place and volunteered to pick apples, pears and plums in the fields 6 hours a day for a month. Thirteen years later after leaving a successful photography career in New York City to move to Maine. I lived on a farm. We grew flowers and vegetables for inns and local restaurants. Almost 30 years later, after bringing a particularly stunning cauliflower back to my studio from the local farmers’ market and placing it on a pedestal in an east facing window, I began my quest to honor The Vegetable. Inspired by a late 19th century English gardener and photographer, Charles Harry Jones. I worked to capture the unique character of these often overlooked plants.
