Is it strange that when I look at certain fruit I find myself a bit aroused. Almost like it’s trying to seduce me. By overwhelming my senses. Like it wants to be devoured. Like we’re meant to be together. Fruit tempts us with enlightenment. We’ve struggled to portray their beauty. Crossed lands to find them. Fought wars over them. But somewhere along the way we’ve stripped them of their power. Reduced to a still life, fruit has become predictable. Or has it?
The Fruit Hunters, 2012

Feature Shoot is pleased to present the group exhibition, Fruitland, a collection of strange still life photographs of fruit by 20 international photographers, at this year’s Photoville Festival in Brooklyn. Much like picking the perfect piece of ripe, delicious-looking fruit from a tree, I’ve spent the last year searching hundreds of photographers’ websites for the freshest and strangest takes on nature’s sweetener. Perhaps as a response or antidote to the labored and moody Dutch still life-inspired food photography that has been proliferating in galleries over the past decade, young photographers are now challenging themselves to take a regular piece of fruit and make it special, adding an array of strange, unique twists.

Featuring Athos Burez, Catherine Losing, Christian Hagemann, Daan Brand, Daniel Evans and Brendan Baker, Daniel Stier, Dominic Davies, Federico Ciamei, Florent Tanet, Gilda Davidian, Heather Rasmussen, Kyoko Hamada, Maciek Pozoga, Maryanne Casasanta, Mate Moro and Aron Filkey, Maxime Guyon, Nico Krijno, and Wyne Veen.

Fruitland will be showing at Photoville in Brooklyn over two long weekends from September 19–29, 2013. For more information or to inquire about purchasing prints, please email alison@featureshoot.com.
