  Cranberries Revealed — from the Marsh to the Table
  Photo Book Presents Cranberries in Art, Agriculture, and Recipes

What’s beautiful, delicious and red all over? Wayne Martin answers that question with his recently published coffee table book about cranberries. Accompany him on a visual journey into the world of cranberries as Cranberries Revealed celebrates a riot of ruby red colors that make this fruit such an appealing subject.

The author draws upon a lifelong career in photography and his childhood growing up in the cranberry country of Central Wisconsin to tantalize readers with images of cranberries photographed in ways never seen before. The three-part book beguiles readers with dramatic close-up and abstract views of cranberries. It intrigues with sweeping aerial panoramas, immerses viewers in the marshlands of Central Wisconsin and tempts the taste buds with award-winning recipes.

His visual journey began as an experiment, freezing cranberries in water and photographing the result. Serendipity ruled the day and led to unexpected and stunningly beautiful images. That prompted him to photograph the source of the berries in their natural environment, the cranberry harvest and cranberries as an ingredient in recipes.

Treat your eyes and palate to a feast of cranberries that will leave you hungry for more. Cranberries Revealed is a must-read source for all things cranberry!

Wayne Martin became a serious photographer upon his first experience with a 35mm film camera 40 years ago. He has worked professionally for more than 35 years, first as an award winning photojournalist in Wisconsin and Oregon and then as an AV/corporate photographer for 10 years. For the last 21 years he has run his own freelance commercial photography business in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area. He lives in Plymouth, MN with his wife, Anne.
