This is not a Hubble photo of a supernova—it's food

Ajay Malghan makes a living by playing with food and taking pictures of it. He cuts a thin slice of carrot, kiwi or any other fruit, presses it in between two glass sheets and experiments with light, colors and proportions. The result are these awesome abstract pictures.

A short documentary called The Space Within explains how his creative process works:

This project is called Naturally Modified and here are some of the pictures—I didn't recognize any of the fruits he is using, you can try if you want to:
