The Vegetables Series

Somoroff was already a seasoned photographer by his early twenties when, in 1979, Richard Avedon helped facilitate his first show of this work at the International Center of Photography, New York. Cornell Capa, director of ICP exhibited the work and published an accompanying catalog. Making color portraits of ordinary vegetables, he experimented with color and graphic elements, creating a sense of movement and emotion where the original form of the objects dissolve in compositions of beauty and transparency.

The Vegetables Series was published by the International Center of Photography in 1985.
