With just two and a half years of experience, 16-year-old Spanish photographer Cristina Otero captivates us with these zoomed-in self-portraits. Using fruit as her inspiration in this series entitled Tutti Frutti , Otero disrupts the conventional notions of feminine beauty and interacts with different fruits in a seductive performance for the camera.
