The title only hints at the goofy — dare we say genius — contents of How Are You Peeling? Foods With Moods, in which fruits and vegetables undergo makeovers that even RuPaul would envy. With the aid of a knife and black-eyed peas for eyes, the artists transform lemons into a grinning clique of buddies, a green pepper into an ogre-esque fiend attacking a red pepper, and radishes into cowering beings. The photos are accompanied by charming, ridiculous rhymes, like ”Amused? Confused? Frustrated? Surprised? Try these feelings on for size.” Okay, so maybe Freymann and Elffers had a little too much time on their hands, but lucky us.
