Food as a photographic subject is somewhat new territory for me. However, from an artistic standpoint, I like highlighting the beauty in everyday objects—juxtaposing utilitarian purpose with artistic vantage. When I cut into this orange (one of the most beautiful I have seen; California does have its delicious fruit), the aesthetic of it captured me right away. It reminded me that art is just as much mindful observation and appreciation of the ordinary, and there need not be an inherent formality about it.
