Art imitates life in The Gourmand's newest photo series, which showcased a collection of real fruits, fashioned to appear as popular smartphone emojis.

The Gourmand is a semi-annual food and culture magazine, making this emoji photo shoot seem like a natural progression for the publication, as the phone-friendly icons become deeply embedded within our culture. The shoot was conducted by still-life photographer Matthieu Lavanchy, and features single food items standing against a plain backdrop. According to the photographer, the minimalist nature of the shoot required a great deal of perfectionism, especially considering how quickly smartphone users would be able to spot a difference from the animated icons.

Some of the re-created pieces include a cup of coffee, a block of cheese and a juicy peach.
