The Secret Lives Of Vegetables By Photographer Maciek Jasik


In the series ‘Secret Lives‘, Polish photographer Maciek Jasik creates vibrant imagery of vegetables and fruits with colored smoke. To create a surreal atmosphere, the photographer punctured produce with a hole or slit where smoke is leaking out. In general, Jasik’s aesthetic is characterized by his use of special effects such as smoke emissions and explosions. In a statement about the series, Jasik says: “The modern world has separated us from the origins and uses of fruits and vegetables; we know them only for the flavors and textures they provide. This series aims to reintroduce these mystical, invisible qualities to fruits and vegetables that have been lost amidst the clamor of nutritional statistics. Each offers its own indelible powers beyond our narrow habits of thought.”
