Scanner art - the unnamed thing
To see is to forget the name of the thing one sees. - Paul Valery
After last week’s vegetable “photo shoot”, my subjects ended up in the soup pot. These leaves were set aside, though - so beautiful I knew they had more photographic potential.
And they certainly lived up to that potential. I spent a fair amount of time examining the intricate patterns and curling edges, and decided that scanography would show them at their best. I was not disappointed! The play of light on the thick leaves creates a beautiful sheen and throws the details into soft relief. From farm, to market, to art. Food for the soul.
Who knew cabbage leaves had so much personality? Very nice!
