While caring for her young children, Cunningham condensed her domestic landscape into still life. Her tightly rendered plant studies present nature with machine precision or as sexual allusion, drawing sensual parallels to the female form that she explored through her long career. Although the picture is a faithful rendering of a plant, Cunningham's concern was not the subject itself but what the subject could become under special circumstances controlled by the photographer.
