You can actually see Groover working through multiple concerns in these photos: how to deal with background; how to have foreground and background interact; how many different kinds of objects can/ should a still life hold; when pure blacks and whites are rarely seen, how many kinds of greys can you put on the same object, etc. etc.

"With photography I didn't have to make things up" she said about her transition from painting.

These are platinum-palladium prints if that means something to you.
