Bill, I couldn't resist. ;-)

In this “still life capture with a twist”, German photographer Holger Niehaus provides his take on the classic bowl of fruit image; stripping fruits of their skin and removing the bowl entirely.
Art Daily has a great write-up of the artist’s work which centers around manipulated versions of classic still life imagery.
Niehaus studied at the AKI Academy of Art and Design in Enschede, and since graduating in 2002 has exhibited his work in Amsterdam, Berlin, Hamburg and Paris. His photographs have also been published in the NRC Handelsblad newspaper, Kunstbeeld and several international art journals. He is represented by Van Zoetendaal. (twistedsifter.com)

Thank you very much, alliebono! And there go all of our grape jokes. :-D

I do not think that the small fruit are grapes! I think they are a chinese fruit called Lychee. They are yummy!! love them!
Lovely still life thanks!

Notice how they all huddle around the big guy - the greatest source of warmth (and security as well, I don't doubt).

Aww, lookit the poor li'l darlings all huddled up and shivering, no doubt (maybe not-so-still life?) I just love the parody on both still life and nudes models all in one fell swoop. I just pray that Herr Niehaus doesn't extend this concept to other life forms outside of the plant kingdom! ;-) Definitely a bit of a challenge with those muted shades and shadows! Thanks, Pat!

Peel me a grape. . .

The peeled grapes were the things we used to use at Halloween to scare the littler kids. We'd dream up some sort of scary story and claim that they were a dead person's eyes. Kids...

I'm impressed that Holger Niehaus got the peels off so cleanly without destroying the fruit in the process. He must have practiced.

Yeah, the grapes are kind of gross. Took me awhile to figure out what they were. The others are okay.

Oh, I thought yours was MUCH better than mine, Plum, because it was spot on. Mine was just the best I could do to respond in kind. :-D

They really are very ugly all nuded up and hanging out together, aren't they, Bill? Especially the grapes. Gak!

You're incorrigible, Patwicia! ;-)

Ap-pear-ently so, Plum. More solves than I expected. ;-)

This is much more ap-peel-ing than most still life paintings.
