Kevin Abosch just sold a photo of a potato for over $1,000,000.00. It may not sound like it would be an interesting photograph -- it’s a potato! But it’s great! (you can see it here). One might not give much thought to a potato, and I suppose that’s what makes this such an interesting subject. I knew as soon as I saw this image, I was going to try and imitate it. Sure, I hope it will sell for a million dollars (just make me an offer), but I’m not going to hold my breath. I will say, it was really fun to try and replicate Abosch’s photograph. To play with the light, and to suddenly be made aware of the intricate detail of a potato (a sweet potato, in my case) made this an exciting exercise. My experiment gave me a greater appreciation for the original photo, and for the intricacy of a seemingly simple subject.
