Portraits Made of Fruits, Flowers and Vegetables


Who doesn't love fanciful art? As a perfect mix of fun and creativity, photographer Klaus Enrique Gerdes creates a series of portraits made of fruits, flowers, and vegetables. “I had been working on a photography series in which I surrounded an isolated human body part with a large quantity of a certain object, when I was struck by the idea for this project,” he told PDN. “While I was photographing a human eye that was peeking out amongst hundreds of leaves, it occurred to me that I could actually utilize leaves to construct portraits or masks.”

His main goal is to ensure that his photos will be remembered long after they were first seen. Gerdes also wishes to satisfy with each and every image. Mission accomplished!
