Michael Somoroff’s first substantial body of work, The Vegetable Series, was produced over the course of a year in 1978. It was initially discovered and promoted by his early supporter Richard Avedon, who introduced Cornell Capa, the founder of The International Center of Photography, where they now reside in the permanent collection, to the young Somoroff’s series. Capa in turn rewarded Somoroff with his first museum show inaugurating his career and the worldwide exhibition of the series. The New York Times featured the opening which drew extensive attention.
