Photographer Tod Papageorge Talk and Book Signing

OK.. this is a free chance to meet a living photo history legend.. Tod Papageorge.

Todpapageorge_central_park_new_york And despite what this blogging quitter Mr. Soth had to say.. MAO would firmly put Tod Papageorge in the category as one of the last undervalued photographers of the 60's, 70's & 80's. (Photo by Tod Papageorge, Central Park, NY 1973)

So, here are the event details..MAO will be there so you know it will be fabulous!

Plus, you'll get to say.. you whiteness the re-discovery of a great American photographer.

FYI.. his new Aperture book,  American Sports, 1970 is wonderful, witty & totally relevant in today's war time era. The book will clearly become an immediate "must have" for any art photography collector.

Tod Papageorge
American Sports, 1970: or How We Spent the War in Vietnam
Talk and Book Signing

Tuesday, February 05, 2008
6:30 p.m.

Free Admission

Aperture Gallery
547 West 27th Street, 4th Floor
New York, New York
(212) 505-5555

Tod Papageorge will discuss the coolly observational yet intensely engaging work featured in his new Aperture monograph American Sports, 1970 or How We Spent The War in Vietnam. These remarkable images, taken over the course of a watershed year for popular opinion against the war, draw a subtle but sharp parallel between the war in Vietnam and the American attitude toward spectator sports during a time of conflict.
