to spotlight the beauty and bounty of seasonal fruits and vegetables throughout the year, henry hargreaves and caitlin levin have formed a series of ‘food scans’, that recontextualize vegetation as visual, surrealist compositions. organized by month, the images traverse the calendar by taking on mirrored, mezmerizing configurations that explore the symmetry and aesthetic characteristics of everyday eats.


simply placed on the scanner, food from fava to figs, and chives to cherries are revealed in their most natural state, with every curve, nook, and cranny perceivable in incredible detail. the series also demonstrates the ways in which imperfections and inconsistencies can become the most interesting examples of nature’s artistry.
