Description
English: A photogram made by placing several slices of lemon directly onto colour photographic paper, thus creating an image of their transparency. The other white "shadows" are of tomato vine stems, and the background texture is created by enlarging the grain of handmade paper which was placed in the negative carrier. The lemons and tomato stems were placed on a piece of cellophane and some of the creases are visible, as well as some gathered drops of the lemon juice. The varied thicknesses of the lemon slices are what determine both its transparency/translucency and the clarity of the detail – compare the two touching slices nearest to the centre of the image. Deliberate slight cyan cast. No digital manipulation.
