View of the materials on a table used to create a photographic advertisement for Ghirardelli chocolates: chocolate bon-bons on a wooden board and materials used to create the backdrop. The backdrop with the word "uniform" and the line of profile women making chocolates is created using 2 props: a line of women in profile cut out of a piece of paper and the work "Uniform" created with letters applied to a plate of glass. Both items are arranged so that they create a gray shadow of a piece of paper when illuminated. The wooden handle of a tool (hammer?) and 2 small boxes of photographic supplies are in the foreground. The finished result is visible in image ark no. 21198/zz002j907c .
