It is hard to believe these professional-looking, vibrant photographs are done by a 16 year-old photographer named Cristina Otero.

Otero's Tutti Frutti self portraits gives fruits a new personality in these fun and fresh photos. She defines what it is like to be as sour as a lemon, juicy like a pomegranate and sassy and sweet like cherries. Her creative makeup artistry and photoshop skills help her capture the mood of these inanimate fruits.

Whether she's green with envy like a bunch of grapes or bursting out to live spontaneously like a refreshing orange, she turns something dull into something exhilarating. These fruit-inspired self portraits are here to stay and will surely inspire other artists, young and old.
