Read Odd Apples

Read Odd Apples 🍎🍏 by William Mullan

“Odd Apples” is a photographic project celebrating Malus (the apple genus), its stunning diversity, enchanting expression, and our centuries-long relationship with it.

Lovely photos of distinctive apples, lit beautifully against a color backdrop thoughtfully chosen, photographed with affection. Scarred and knobby apples are given the same care as the obviously beautiful varieties. What a labor of love to track down all these heirloom fruits. I enjoyed learning where each variety was developed – he’s collected varietals from all over the world. A wide range of colors, patterns, and shapes – human heritage in the form of fruit. I bought the small edition and part of me wishes I’d bought the large special edition because I enjoyed this so much.

I love this understated tone on tone shot as much as the brighter and more vibrant photos.
