Certain shapes and patterns can be found across diverse species in the animal and vegetal world. This series uses close-ups and macro photography of food to explore patterns which resemble human organs or tissue, in their physiological or pathological state. For instance, a broken stalk of celery can illustrate a bone fracture, while the texture of bread resembles the osteoporotic bone.
