About the Book
The story behind this book is that I ordered an heirloom tomato from an online grocery store.
When it arrived, I was so intrigued by its colour and shape that I instantly decided to make a photographic project using this type of tomato.
My husband was kind enough to go to the grocery store to purchase a variety of heirloom tomatoes for me to work with.
This interesting and colourful art impression is the result.
