Women and fruit are often placed together in art, whether it be the oranges in Manet’s A Bar at the Folies-Bergère or the suggestive cucumbers and satsumas present in Sarah Lucas’ Au Naturel — there’s something strange and beautiful that just kind of works when you combine the two. These photographs by artist Heidi Voet combine images of naked women taken from Chinese magazines with pieces of strategically placed fruits and vegetable, and make for a really stunning series.

“The fresh vegetables visually complete the young bodies,” Heidi says “highlighting consumption and each other’s limited preservability.”
