Lot Report


Asked myself, what is it about the cheese that makes it so unique visually? The cheese is carefully scraped with a knife to produce thin shavings, which is said to help develop the odour and flavour by allowing oxygen to reach more of the surface. This is my interpretation of this process.

About the Artist:
Anne Mason-Hoerter is a Canadian photographer who experiments with the combining of multiple image scans and digital images of food. She was captivated very early on by extreme photographic manipulation techniques as a photography student at the Ontario College of Art in Toronto, Canada. Anne is constantly in search for unconventional ways in which to present food and botanics.
