As the subject for this exhibit is the grains themselves, object-based photography seemed most appropriate for the production of these images. The photographs are similar in composition to images widely produced by Alfred Stieglitz, Edward Westonand Margaret Bourke-White, consisting of sharply focused object-based photography rich in texture, color and contrast. The average American knows very little about the origins of the foods we eat, as we become increasingly more detached from our food sources. The images serve as a way to reconnect us with the sources of the foods we eat and remind us of how these foods came to be in their present form.
