Tutti Frutti, A Fruit-Inspired Self Portrait Series by Cristina Otero

Tutti Frutti is a beautiful self portrait series by Spanish photographer Cristina Otero. Inspired by the colors, forms, and textures of various fruits — Otero then styles her makeup to mimic one fruit for each portrait, while adding effective contrast via hair color. Otero also manages, quite brilliantly, to give each fruit a personality with her own facial expressions.

A few other details that shouldn’t be overlooked while viewing the series… Otero uses a very modest Canon 1000D, while relying on nothing more than whatever light comes through a window — rather than studio lights. Oh, and did I mention that Otero is only sixteen? Well, she’s only sixteen. Please enjoy.
