Can “who” be followed by “when”?

I wrote:

They are all gorgeous and reflect the beauty and diversity of Eastern Europeans, but I expect pictures from more ordinary people. Those who when you see, you say they are Eastern European.

Is the bold part grammatically correct?

Answer

Consider:

I like simple, hearty food, food which, when you taste it, you
say, now this is real food!

You need a direct object for the verb taste in the phrase which stands in apposition to “simple, hearty food”

…food which, when you taste it you say…

or

I hate the jingles on TV commercials, maddening snippets of melody which, once
you’ve heard them
, you can never get out of your head.

P.S.

You could rewrite the sentence above in the passive:

I hate the jingles on TV commercials, maddening snippets of melody which, once
heard
, cannot be gotten out of your head.
