I wanted to create an image that would appear to have been shot at a rural museum. Mission accomplished. I was asked many times at the artist festival, where I was selling my work, if I this shot was taken at the local museum.
I set this scene up at my father-in-law’s childhood home, a 100-year-old log house. The old tin cans came from my mother-in-law’s cold room. I found the colander, the old grater and tin box in the log house’s dirt basement. After wiping years of grime off the colander, I placed everything in a cupboard in the kitchen and shot away.
