I'll Be Your Father #1 is one of the earlier Kombucha 'mother' photographic portraits by Eric Bessel. He describes the earlier pieces in the series as, "thin and generally whitish in appearance, like a skin that might form on vanilla pudding."
Bessel explain his process:
I played host to a family of enormous parasitic ‘mothers,’ most commonly found dormantin refrigerated bottles of store-bought kombucha. I discovered that a mother left at room temperature, along with some sweet tea, comes alive.
