As the year cycles, each month has some flora that reaches its peak. It would be interesting to looks at a year as a sum of each month’s ripened fruits and vegetables. And this is  what photographers Caitlin Levin and Henry Hargreaves did.

They scanned the ripe fruits of each month an created a kaleidoscopic image out of the scan. Results are mesmerizing as they are tasty.

Henry shared with us his motivation for the series:

Organized by month, Food Scans is a series that showcases the beauty and bounty of seasonal fruits and vegetables throughout the year. Just as produce picked at peak flavor requires very little adornment on the plate, such was the case with these pictures. Simply placed on the scanner, we’re able to see every curve, nook, and cranny in incredible detail — and mirrored images allow us to explore symmetry, natural beauty, and the way imperfections and inconsistencies often become the most breathtaking examples of nature’s artistry
