|RADISH, Caren Alpert Fine Art|
Sometimes it's fun to take a different look at our food. Artist Caren Alpert does just that, using an electron microscope to photograph edible items in an up-close-and-personal style. The radish photo at the left is both mysterious and beautiful; it almost reminds me of a gorgeous patterned cloth.
|CELERY LEAF, Caren Alpert Fine Art|
It's interesting to compare the photos of whole, all natural foods to highly processed foods. Alpert used the microscope to look at everything from celery to Oreos, sometimes zeroing in at a cellular level. Personally, I enjoyed looking at each photo and trying to determine what it might be before sneaking a peek at the title of the piece. FYI, I was usually wrong. :)
