The dozen or so apple varieties commonly found at any grocery store represent only a fraction of the thousands of named varieties that exist in the world. Over the course of one fall, the Bay Area photographer Jonathan Gerken searched nearby farmers' markets and remote orchards for unique, lesser-known cultivars. He found 47 apples. Some are familiar. Others are striking. After photographing the apples—whole and split neatly in half—Gerken ate each one. The end result is a little 4 x 5-inch book called appropriately Apples I Have Eaten.
