Once again, Nature in her infinite wisdom, seeks to teach us to observe her varied and playful forms. Here, the star attaching the fruit to the stem connects twin eggplants.
I saw this specimen as a vegetal star, a cosmic sign of the unity of matter and spirit. When I saw this purple beauty in the bin at the Roxbury Farm pickup location when we lived in Westchester County, New York, I just knew I needed to shoot its portrait.
See detail closeup shot below.
Eggplant is offered in a signed, limited edition of 250, printed on 8.5" x 11" archival matte paper which enhances its rich deep purple tones.
