New York City-based photographer Klaus Enrique (previously featured here) created an awesome series of portraits entitled Arcimboldo. The series was inspired by the works of 16th century Italian painter Giuseppe Arcimboldo, who was best known for creating painted representations of people using things like fruits, vegetables, flowers, and fish arranged in such a way that the objects formed recognizable likenesses of his subjects.

Klaus Enrique does the same thing, only instead of painting his subjects, he arranges actual pieces of fruit, vegetables, flowers, meat, candy, animals, insects, and more to create his portraits. He began by recreating some of Giuseppe Arcimboldo’s paintings using the same objects depicted in the original paintings. Then he expanded his series to include portraits of modern day figures, both real and fictional, like Ghandi, Princess Diana, Darth Vader, and Frankenstein’s Monster.

He explained, “Although most recognize the images immediately as portraits, there are many people who do not. At first they only see the individual parts of the image: the fruits, flowers, and vegetables. But after looking at it for a while, they realize that it’s a portrait of a person. To see that thought process being played out in real time is very satisfying to me because it mimics the thinking behind the art: that simple organic objects come together to create something more meaningful than the sum of its parts.”
