One of American singer-songwriter Lou Reed’s lasting legacies, besides founding The Velvet Underground, will forever be his impact on the way the world sees bananas.

For The Velvet Underground’s debut album, The Velvet Underground & Nico, fans were invited to peel back the skin of Andy Warhol’s famous banana image (as a sticker), to reveal the flesh of the fruit underneath. It was a moment. A little dark, equal parts cheeky as beautiful, the sentiment was much like photographer Andrew Cowen’s images.

In a playful tribute to Lou Reed – this week Dish-Pig and Cowen reimagine Warhol’s fruit with the help of family and friends. ‘Andy’s Bananas for Lou’ is an intersection of photography, fashion and art that not only celebrates a musical great, but also, explores our continued fascination with our favourite jungle food. Peel slowly and see for yourself.
