|"Pepper Runs Through the Prickly Peach"|
© Robert C. Jacobsen
Jacobsen's photographs start with hyper-real representations of the natural world. Familiar fruits and vegetables are rendered unfamiliar as their scale becomes huge. Jacobsen plays with their colors, shapes, and textures; these aren't "still lifes" in a traditional sense. He works extensively on his images, and each individual element is part of his palette that when combined becomes lively abstraction.
His signed, limited edition giclée prints were made by Still River Editions.
