Natural Selection is a contemplative piece of work, exploring issues around control and conformity. The work was made in response to commission regulation (EC) no. 1221, which set out quality standards for certain fruit and vegetables within the EU. This work is concerned with the exclusion of fruit and vegetables based on their aesthetic value. Despite being otherwise healthy, food that didn’t meet the visual inspection criteria was destroyed. This set of images asks the viewer to look at each piece of fruit intimately, noting its imperfection, but also its individuality and beauty.
