Soon after the online group show The Un-Natural Nature of Food was published on Fraction, I received a few emails from photographers who had related work. Nate Larson emailed me a link to his Kirlian Photographs of food. Larson introduces the process in his introduction:
"Kirlian Photography is a process that uses electricity rather than light to make contact images on photographic media. The Russian-born inventor Semyon Kirlian pioneered the process in 1939, which works by illuminating the electrical field around an object and recording the multi-colored emanations on photographic film or paper."
