“Philip Gefter Lecture and Book Signing
Monday, June 29 | 7:00 pm
Please join us for a talk by New York Times writer and former picture editor Philip Gefter, who will discuss his new book, Photography after Frank: Essays by Philip Gefter. The author presents the tale of contemporary photography, starting with a pivotal moment: Robert Frank’s seminal work in the 1950s. Along the way, he connects the dots of photography’s transformation into what it is today. Photography after Frank offers a page-turning yet journalistic approach bound to appeal to students and art world aficionados alike. A book signing will immediately follow in the adjacent Director’s Roundtable Garden.”
