Sharon Core is a photographer who captures incredible still lifes that makes us salivate. Fresh, calm, and somehow optimistic. Her new show, "Early American" opens today at the Gallery at Hermes. The work is inspired by the 19th Century painter Raphaelle Peale. Core photographs homegrown fruits and vegetables that she grows in her Hudson Valley garden, carefully displayed on similar antiques to the ones painted by Pealle. This series of work was previously shown at the Yancy Richardson Gallery in New York.
