“Fresh Faces is a collaboration between Brooklyn based photographer Emily Dryden and sculptor and actress Zahydé Pietri. Inspired by the diversity of color and shape in nature, we created a cast of vibrant characters to reflect our observations. We sought to create unique personas for each piece by using fresh fruit, vegetables and botanicals. The series combines sculpture and photography to highlight and preserve their charm while still in their prime. Fresh Faces hopes to promote both cultural and agricultural diversity.”
