There is something about certain fruits that instantly put people's minds in the gutter; pair them with latex and the result is even more boundary-pushing as is the case with Rude Fruit by Katy Pople. Taking still life to a fetishized level, she arranges bananas, cherries and more in the folds of brightly colored latex materials. Some of the imagery would make even Hugh Hefner blush.
Rude Fruit by Katy Pople was shot for the highly-anticipated 'Tutti Frutti with Bompas & Parr and Friends' book. The authors describe it as exploring "the gustatory implications of fruit salad," elaborating that it "takes in architectural pineapples, the spaces of banana control, how blue became the international colour for raspberries and a luxurious host of fruity recipes…It’ll be a book to melt people’s brains."
