This week’s wallpaper comes from our pepper chart, a visual guide to chiles. Our photographer, Chris, shot his first pepper when he was 12, trying to copy the famous photograph by Edward Weston. But for these shots, he said he wanted them to look bright and saturated, so he shot them with a single hard light. This enabled him to clearly show the surface of each pepper, and keep it real, not romanticized.
