Food Infused Into Everyday Items Make for a Whimsical Collection

Sarah Illenberger’s lightbulb moment came during a stroll at a food market in Tuscany, Italy. The London-based photographer and frequent traveler found inspiration that very moment when she saw that vegetables and fruit can take on a life of their own when combined with everyday items. Illenberger’s continued focus on mixing art and design is based on exploring different concepts to deliver unexpected visual experiences which forms the basis of the series Tutti Frutti. The aptly-titled collection features whimsical photographs such as Melon-choly for a watermelon raining seeds to Pome-grenade where ironically, a hand grenade is paired with its namesake fruit.
