TATTOOED – series of photographs of tattooed fruit, flowers and vegetables, Keith Tallett (2012-ongoing). This series documents the permanent residue that results from the act of tattooing directly on the fresh skin of highly perishable imports – fruit, flowers and vegetables. Imported plants, and animals develop adapt to new environments over time, but humans change and acclimate more quickly, adopting customs, appearance, rituals and language in order to fit in or stand out. Tattooing this food/produce gives it a kind of protective banner, marks it as toxic, or allows it to assimilate.
