In this piece, I photographed a sculpture of an apple that I made using a base of cardboard and chicken wire which I then layered with newspaper and then painted it red with a varnish finish. I chose to photograph my apple with my brother in the background in a large, open space to create an out of place, dreamlike quality. I was inspired by the surrealist artists René Magritte and Storm Thorgerson.
