These photos are a study of texture, shape and color. Using fruit and vegetables as symbolic gestures, I endeavor to transform the natural gifts of everyday life into a work of art: the intricate design of the artichoke, the sweet richness of the tomato, the brilliant delicacy of the zucchini flower, the fresh zest of the lemon, and the essential boldness of the garlic and hot peppers all contribute to a deep, fulfilling Italian scene. A still life, yes, but also a vivid sensation that speaks of an entire culture, turning culinary passion into art and truly honoring those things that grow and sustain us.
