Playful Series Depicts the Secret Sporting Lives of Fruits and Vegetables

Paris-based artist and photographer Benoit Jammes imagines the secret sporting lives of fruits and vegetables in his delightful new series Skitchen, which combines the words “skate” and “kitchen” in an accurate description of the produce stars’ dynamic movements.

The playful series humorously depicts the danger of some of their extreme stunts, as some fruits and veggies face the risk of losing their peels, falling into hot ovens, or even ending up splattered across the kitchen counter. Should’ve worn a helmet and pads!
