In her photography series, Early American, Sharon Core meticulously recreates still life compositions painted by the 19th-century American artist, Raphaelle Peale.  Core carefully replicated Peale’s use of lighting and subject matter and grew heirloom seed varieties of fruits and vegetables in existence in the early 19th century to place in the composition. The carefully constructed images also examine the relationship between illusion and reality within photography.

Core was commissioned by Lincoln Center to create an edition of 9 C-prints in 2010.
