Some people look for—and find—art in the most unlikeliest of places and things. Heikki Leis is one of those people. The Estonian artist, who trained in masonry and sculpture, is also an avid photographer and in his series Afterlife he takes an arty look at spoiled fruit and vegetables. Leis photographs potatoes, pumpkin, corn, and beets at different stages of decomposition and the rotting results are rather pretty. Have a look at some of them after the jump.
