An apple menagerie
On its house Flickr account, W.W. Norton (my publisher) has published a full grid of all the 59 apple variety portraits that we photographed for the book. It was quite a feat getting all that fruit into the studio at the same time—especially since the photo shoot happened in November and some of the apples we shot had come into season in August. One particularly desperate call for Gravensteins persuaded farmer Gene Calvi at K&K Orchard in Sebastopol, CA to kindly dig out a few stragglers from his own personal stash.
I can’t seem to reproduce the grid here in WordPress, but here’s a long line of apples. I’ll annotate when I have some time…
But the result? Heavenly. Thanks to Squire Fox for taking such beautiful portraits.
