WHO WOULD TRASH a perfectly good fork just to make a perfectly interesting photograph? Norman Montifar, that’s who. By bending and twisting the fork for his image “The Petrified Diner” he implied a story, a life the fork lived before the image was shot. To light it he used a D.I.Y. strip light and a few gobos to get his desired reflection on the fork. Then he backlit the other forks with a gridded second flash, creating the long shadows that add to the drama of the brutalized cutlery.
