Grotesque Photos of Structures Made From Fruit and Vegetable Matter

Nadege Meriau

UK based photographer Nadege Meriau transforms food and natural matter into visceral, primeval dwellings and grottos reminiscent of the underworld. Her meticulous and creative eye takes these fruits and vegetables to the next level. Olivier Richon, Head of Photography at the Royal College of Art in London where Meriau recevied an MA in Photography, describes this series perfectly:

If in fairy tales, houses are made of sweets, Nadege Meriau does the reverse, transforming the edible into a dwelling, making architectures of fibers, vegetables and porous matter. This is an architecture of the digestible, made of curves and unexpected textures, that recall the art of the rocaille, or when a grotto is endowed with a viscosity that reminds us of a digestive apparatus.—Olivier Richon
