In 2014, Amsterdam-based design studio Lernert & Sander created a wonderfully unconventional photograph of 98 different types of food. They transformed whole, unprocessed fruits, vegetables, and protein into identical 2.5 centimeter cubes. The assignment was for a Dutch newspaper called De Volkskrant and was part of their documentary photography issue about food.
Lernet & Sander's visual response isn't what you might expect, but it's oddly satisfying to see such organization and uniformity in seemingly disparate edibles. The perfectly-arranged grid includes kiwis, watermelons, and lettuce alongside salmon and tuna. Their defining colors and characteristics remain partially visible, so that way the foods are still identifiable despite being cropped to a much smaller size.
The photo is available as a limited edition C-print of 50 copies. Check out their website for more information on how to buy it.
