Description: Ranjit Bhatnagar buys most of his groceries at city greenmarkets, most often the market at Grand Army Plaza next to Brooklyn’s Central Library. For over a decade, Bhatnagar has been using desktop scanners to make still lifes of his greenmarket goodies – the series now contains almost 700 images.
In scanography, objects are placed directly on a flatbed scanner to create digital images with fine detail, intense colors, a limited depth of field and an unusual perspective that is distinct from any form of lens photography or natural vision. These prints, with a number of others from the series, were exhibited at the Brooklyn Central Public Library’s (Un) Still Life photo exhibit in 2011. The produce scans have appeared in a number of publications including Utne Reader and Edible Brooklyn.
