Pop-Up Event with Photographer Noah Fecks and Food Stylist Victoria Granof, Space For Arts x Society of Publication Designers

For our second Pop-up collaboration, Space for Arts joined with The Society of Publication Designers at one of our favorite shooting kitchens. Photographer Noah Fecks and Food Stylist Victoria Granof spoke about their new personal collaboration Toast Water.

About Toast Water:

“Toast Water is a culinary art book created by photographer Noah Fecks and renowned food stylist and author Victoria Granof. Together they illustrated vintage recipes from Noah’s Nana as a bound volume of inspiring photographs and original text. The size, binding and cover of the book is inspired by children’s holy books and was printed at a press that specializes in the manufacturing of Torahs.”

It was a boisterous night discussing the sometimes beautiful sometimes hysterical Toast Water.

Langdon Clay ‘Cars’ New York City, 1974 ‐ 1976

We’re fascinated by this new book from Langdon Clay. Cars were an indispensable aspect of twentieth‐century culture, both for their utility and aesthetics. From 1974 to 1976, Langdon Clay photographed the cars he encountered while wandering the streets of New York City and nearby Hoboken, New Jersey at night. Shot in Kodachrome with a Leica and deftly lit with then new sodium vapor lights, the pictures feature a distinct array of makes and models set against the gritty details of their surrounding urban and architectural environments, and occasionally the ghostly presence of people.

Langdon Clay was born in New York City in 1949. He grew up in New Jersey and Vermont and attended school in New Hampshire and Boston. Clay moved to New York in 1971 and spent the next sixteen years photographing there, around the country and in Europe for various magazines and books. In 1987 he […]
