for a recent still life series, polish photographer maciek jasik imagines fruits and vegetables filled, not with a fleshy, edible interior, but rather plumes and puffs of vibrantly colored vapor. for ‘the secret lives of fruits and vegetables’, jasik looks inside the thick, exterior skins of watermelons, squash, pomegranates and pumpkins and reveals a fleeting flood of fog and smoke.
spilling from small apertures punctured into the produces’ shell, the richly hued haze forms ephemeral clouds that jasik freezes for the frame. the mysterious, multicolored mist creates an unexpected and surreal scenario, where the insides of ordinary fruits and vegetables are vaguely unknown.
