My brother Dawid loves to grow plants. He grows many different plants like the one you see bellow and many more not pictured. Cacti, pawpaw, mango, guava, papaya are a few that I can think of right now.
This was his first nice and big successful pineapple that he has grown so far. I set out to document what happens to a pineapple after it is picked. I decided to do three triptychs of the different stages.

The natives of southern Brazil and Paraguay spread the pineapple throughout South America, and it eventually reached the Caribbean, Central America, and Mexico, where it was cultivated by the Mayas and the Aztecs. Columbus encountered the pineapple in 1493 on the leeward island of Guadeloupe.
