The Value of a Dollar

For his "The Value of a Dollar" project, Jonathan Blaustein set out to buy and photograph food that cost only a dollar from the markets of New Mexico. The photographs in this project attempt to strip back the artifice; to depict food items as they were sold, (minus packaging,) without styling, retouching, or artificial lighting. The resulting images allow for a meditation on the power and seductive nature of the photographic medium itself.
