German slang for light bulb is “die Glühbirne,” or “the glow pear.” As Romanian photograph Radu Zaciu explained to Petapixel, his latest series, “The Light Inside,” was originally inspired by this word play.

Starting with a pear, Zaciu has been drilling and carving holes into fruits and vegetables, inserting a light bulb, and then photographing the glowing produce in a darkened room. The results are gorgeous, from the liquid magma of the cauliflower to the delicate, protoplasmic green waves of a tightly furled cabbage.
