this shot came about from teh discussion of old books
the book here is from 1912, and i assume that’s how old the signature is as well, and when shooting other books for an assignment i began thinking how much the stack of old books were like people,
so i began taking book protraits
the apple next to the name is meant ot show the book had ben read through, discarted, and now was drying out and used.
the fruit of knowledge doesn’t last forever, like our minds and like our own faces
it was very amusing to explain this in front of a group of people, i’m sur by the end they thought i’d gone off the rocker but these were just some things i’d thought about while doing the shoot
