In this series, Naturally Modified, Ajay Malghan takes a look at the food we eat. This camerless body of work was created by putting fruits and vegetables between glass plates and using them as a negative. As Malghan states,
“By utilizing colour, the works abstract the viewer and remove the otherwise ordinary fruits and vegetables from their context. As photography is deeply rooted in science; these images extract the camera and allow us to see the ordinary in new ways while blurring the lines between art and science. As our food is more processed and more steps are introduced between farm and table, the colour added becomes ironic with art imitating life.”
