Andy’s Flowers (2008/2014)

Where are the peppers? I was thinking about the current large format photography community, hobbyists to professionals, often working in the style of Ansel Adams, Edward Weston, et al. Lots of Yosemite, lots of rocks and trees, shells. But no peppers, despite the fact that Pepper No. 30 remains one of the iconic images of 20th Century photography.

Which got me thinking about still lifes in general, and then, since my neighbor Andy had just given us several of his amazing roses, about flowers. I decided to try to photograph them.
