Crunchy horror

carrots "Carrots'' (archival digital print), by VANESSA THOMPSON,  in her show "Vanessa Thompson: Eat Your Vegetables,'' at Galatea Fine Art, Boston, July 1-30.

She says: "Sounds created by something even as virtuous as a carrot will cause us to cringe if cracked just right. Inspired by the aesthetics and sounds of 1970's Giallo films, the images in this series invoke that disquietude.''

Sounds as if she's trying to do for vegetables what Hitchcock did for birds.
