First Post: Chicken

Frederick Sommer Chicken Entrails 1939

Sandra Cisneros once said that she writes about the ugliest things she can think of. Yet all her works are beautiful. Sommer's Chicken Entrails is similar It's a natural object, yet the way the light reflects off of the wet entrails. The tonal variation of the blood, tissue, and bone. It's as if it were a myriad of brilliant colors, colors only seen in black and white. This inspired me to play with tonal difference more and deviate from my usual high contrast pictures.
