Uncanny self-portraits

There was this thing way back in the Middle Ages (prepare to be shocked) where people actually thought if a certain natural object, like a fruit or vegetable, looked like specific organ, that it would likely be able to cure it of any disease or infection. Yeah, we warned you.

It was a practice among “herbalists and wise women,” according to artist Marwane Pallas, a self-taught French photographer whose work consists mostly of self-portraits and is exhibited around the world. His latest project, A Doctrine of Signature, is quite beautiful, with every food he uses in the images matching a similar-looking body part. They’re difficult to look at, yet we can’t turn away.
