With just two and a half years of experience, 16-year-old Spanish photographer Cristina Otero captivates us with these zoomed-in self-portraits. Using fruit as her inspiration in this series entitled Tutti Frutti, Otero disrupts the conventional notions of feminine beauty and interacts with different fruits in a seductive performance for the camera. She draws the viewer in with her wide, innocent eyes while the bold, striking colors of her make-up complement each fruit.
During an interview, she said that she loves photographing the human face because, “It’s like a dictionary of emotions and ideas, all you want in a person is there, written on her face, so easy to decipher.” Using her own face as the canvas, Otero creates refreshing photos that are extraordinarily eye-catching. These self-portraits are filled with personality!
