1 CREATIVE PHOTOGRAPHY BY KLAUS ENRIQUE USING FRUITS, FLOWERS, VEGETABLES...

Klaus Enrique Gerdes, a New York based photographer, was inspired by Itialian painter Giuseppe Archimboldo and  recreated a selection of the artist's 16th century paintings using fruits, flowers and vegetables.

Giuseppe Archimboldo was an Italian painter best known for creating imaginative portrait heads made entirely of such objects as fruits, vegetables, flowers, fish, and books - that is, he painted representations of these objects on the canvas arranged in such a way that the whole collection of objects formed a recognisable likeness of the portrait subject.

Klaus Enrique Gerdes now does the same, except that photography allows him to capture his subject instantly - before any of the ingredients begin to wilt.
