Gauguin was the mango master

I remember when I first became interested in photography, I discovered books my father had purchased from Kodak.  I think I was about five years old. I marvelled at the clouds in those black and white skies.

The books have long disappeared, but I suspect in the 1950s, those skies were Ansel Adams.

Later, when I became interested in painting and drawing, I was much older.  But when I stumbled upon a small book of pictures by Gauguin, I was amazed at his colour.  His still life with mangoes made a huge impression.

So here are some photos of mangoes to bring my art obsession full circle.
