"Figs and Morning Glories"

For foodies who can’t stop thinking about food, this visual treat is a must:  an exhibition of food photography at the Robert Mann Gallery in Chelsea.

Food for Thought:  A Group Exhibition,” showcases some 30 color and vintage black-and-white photographs from 1912 to 2010, several by well-known artists, such as Man Ray.

The exhibition features many still lifes — both classical and modern — and revealing portraits of people either in kitchens or at dinner tables.

Two images, “Lemons and Pomegranates” and “Figs and Morning Glories” by Paulette Tavormina, are visual delights that reveal the fruit — inside and outside  — in glorious detail.  Another personal favorite, the oldest in the collection, is a 1912 platinum print of grape clusters by Edwin Hale Lincoln – it reminded me of my grandfather’s vineyard in Portugal.

The exhibition will run through May 14.

(The Robert Mann Gallery is located at 210 11th Avenue at 24th Street.  It is open Tuesday to Saturday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.)
