    Eva-Fiore Kovacovsky: Frozen Still Life

Eva-Fiore Kovacovsky brings life to frozen veg in her charming freezer photos

Posted by James Cartwright,

We’ve all been there, hurriedly scrambling to fill up the fridge before heading out somewhere more important, carelessly tossing the lettuce right to the back, thus committing the most cardinal of refrigerative sins. That lettuce is going to freeze and be utterly useless to you. Foolish. But what if you could turn that frosty iceberg into something bigger and better than a wilted cluster of leaves? What if you could turn it into art?

Granted it’s quite a leap of the imagination but it’s one that photographer Eva-Fiore Kovacovsky has already made. The Swiss artist lovingly documents the sad frozen contents of her freezer in neat little still-lifes that are effortlessly charming – she also has a sideline in plated fruit and veg. We can’t explain why a gaggle of peas swarming some clementines puts a smile on our faces but it definitely does.
