In their most recent collaboration, photographer Henry Hargreaves and food stylist Caitlin Levin created a kaleidoscopic collage of seasonal fruits and vegetables. Beginning the Food Scans project in the fall of 2014, Hargreaves and Levin spent a year organizing and documenting each month’s bounty using fresh produce and the simplicity of a scanner. The collection of roots, lettuces, mushrooms, herbs, fruits and flowers arranged in vivid geometries, capture the diversity of color, shape and genius of nature’s design. “Simply placed on the scanner, we’re able to see every curve, nook, and cranny in incredible detail — and mirrored images allow us to explore symmetry, natural beauty, and the way imperfections and inconsistencies often become the most breathtaking examples of nature’s artistry,” the collaborators explained in their artist statement.
The New York-based artists produced an artful guide to the bounty of each season. In an interview with the Huffington Post, Hargreaves explained, “For me, it was looking at the calendar in a totally different way, because I’m from the Southern Hemisphere. Suddenly the things you have during Christmas time here are different. But I also think it’s about modern society—we kind of expect to go to the supermarket and get anything we want at any time of the year. So this was also an exploration to show people what are the things you should be getting at certain times of the year.” For those who can’t wait for a calendar, you can purchase a digital print of your favorite month here.
