    I saw a photogarph several years ago. It was in time magazine (it think) that i saw it. I believe it was time greatest photos or best of the century or something like that. The photograph was of a vegetable (i think it was a bellpepper) shot in black and white. It looked as though it was a women's leg leading to the butt. It is a very sexy photograph. It let a strong enough impressing on me for me to remember it for 2+ years. If someone knows the name or can locate this photo, i would very much appreciate it

    thanks

    There have been a number of photographers who have shot peppers over the years.
    The famous one is Edward Weston. He did a whole series and is the guy who influenced everyone else on the subject.
    It may well have been one of his

    But then it could have been a shot taken just for the publication in which case your only option is to see if you can find it searching through back copies.

    I'm sure if you wrote to them they'd let you buy a copy, then you could put it on the wall!
