This pictorial book reveals people as new species of vegetables. It is said that when you eat something, like a plant, it becomes a part of you. In return, you become a part of the plant. These portraits were taken on 11/22/2009, where a party was held featuring special vegetable dishes. As each guest consumed the food, their photograph was taken to mark the event. Each person was then identified with a scientific name as a new version of the vegetable. The images were then collected and assembled into book format.
