PDN Photo of the Day

The Vegetable Gardener

“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. 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. I researched what other artists had created along these lines and discovered that, as usual, someone somewhere had already done something similar. In this case it was the artist Giuseppe Arcimboldo, who made paintings with this concept in mind over 400 years ago. I decided to recreate Arcimboldo’s work, and eventually to create my own images with his paintings as inspiration.” – Klaus Enrique
