Produce Illusion, A Series of Desaturated and Monochromatic Fruit

produce-illusion

Stripping fruits of their natural color, artist Dewey Saunders and photographer Andre Rucker created Produce Illusion.

Saunders and Rucker’s choice to make the produce desaturated and monochromatic adds an interesting visual element — while the fruits remain easily recognizable by shape and texture.

They also toy with gravity, stacking these re-colored fruits into beautiful sculptures.
