Photographer Tod Papageorge Talk and Book Signing
OK.. this is a
free chance to meet a living photo history legend.. Tod Papageorge.
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.
American Sports, 1970: or How We Spent the War in Vietnam
Talk and Book Signing
Tuesday, February 05, 2008
547 West 27th Street, 4th Floor
New York, New York
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.
