The Tray Series

PrizeShortlist in Photography
ArtistLynn Karlin

Food. We taste (rather we eat), we touch (maybe not enough). But how often do we slow down to really admire and honor the often-overlooked vegetables, fruit, and edible plants that nourish us? Do we notice the myriad varieties and color of peppers, the seductive shape of the simple pear, the delicateness of squash blossoms. My photographic collection, “The Tray Series”, offers an aerial view in a confined space often exiting the frame to break up the design. Thinking within the box, I look for good form, texture, patina and color- showing beauty can be found everywhere if you take the time to really look.
