Fresh Faces: Theatricality And Organic Food Art

1

Photographer Emily Dryden and sculptor/actor Zahydé Pietri combine theatricality and organic produce to compose the photographs for their series Fresh Faces. The portraits are made from a wide range of fruit and vegetables and aim to highlight humanity’s diversity – Pietri is from Puerto Rico and Dryden is from New York.

Each face has its own name and identity: “We have stories for them, which you can see in the expressions”, says Dryden, “but we decided to keep them to ourselves. We didn’t want to spoil that”.

Emily Dryden: “We captured the vibrancy of the food through natural light and the black velvet background”.

3Eva

Zahydé Pietri: “I really fell in love with the project when Eva happened. She’s just so alive”.

4Sylvia

Dryden: “When we finished, Sylvia was my favourite. I imagined her as a creative business lady”.

Dryden: “Getting the shot done in time before the food wilted was really hard”.
