Food stylist Victoria Granof has worked with the photography world’s most celebrated artists, including a decade with the legendary Irving Penn. Yet, sometimes her clients opt not to use what she and her photographic collaborators think is the best image. With the new exhibition “Killed: Beautiful Food That Never Made the Cut,” opening November 21 in New York City, those photos will finally get their due.
“Killed” was conceived by Victoria and Craig Cutler, with whom she has collaborated many times over the past several years. In fact, they created the photograph used on the show’s invitation. “Killed” features images by more than 30 photographers, including Hans Gissinger, Kenji Toma, Mitchell Feinberg, Marcus Nilsson, Ilan Rubin, Anita Calero, Marcus Gaab, Plamen Petcov, and Christian Witkin. Victoria has also arranged to show mementos from her years working with Irving Penn.
“Killed” will open on November 21 for an exclusive one-night exhibition at Craig Cutler Studio. The show will then move to Pure Space Studio, 601 W. 26th St., 12th floor, Suite 1225, NYC, where it will be on view to the public through the end of December. The photographs will be printed by master printer Jim Roselli of Xact Studios in New York.
The images in “Killed” will be placed in a silent auction at BiddingForGood.com benefiting Just Food (justfood.org)
