A collaboration between two artists resulted in these unusual edible portraits that aim to emphasize diversity and individuality.
Created by photographer Emily Dryden and sculptor Zahydé Pietri, these portraits use fruit, vegetables and flowers to make up human-like faces that range in color, shape, size and general appearance. From all-red women's faces with chili-pepper earrings to bearded men made from mushrooms, each of these edible portraits is extremely unique. The sculptures were photographed on a black backdrop that makes the vibrant colors and unusual shapes of the portraits stand out. The artists have a personal story for each portrait but leave it to the viewers to interpret them as they wish.
These unusual portraits interestingly highlight diversity while remaining tasteful and artistic.
