November 19th and 22nd- Gina LeVay “Sandhogs” Lecture and Booksigning

Photographer Gina LeVay will be presenting her new book “Sandhogs” at several upcoming events

About the book (from the website)

Sandhogs is an original portal to the unseen characters and systems of underground New York—revealing the essential “art form” of mining in the modernized city. In 2003 Gina LeVay was granted rare access to photograph the “hogs,” in the tunnel and at off-site locations. “The Sandhog Project” is a multi-faceted work of photo, video, web, and installation art, which explores the figurative and literal overlay, and mutual dependency of the surface city and this underground world. With the Sandhogs book and accompanying exhibitions, LeVay introduces the public to this vibrant and intricate subculture, bringing their rich, extraordinary, subterranean imagery to the surface for the first time ever.

November 19, 2009 7:30 pm Book signing and talk at Barnes and Nobles, Greenwich Village NYC, More information
November 22, 2009 1-2pmBook signing and talk B&H Photo & Video, More information

November 19th- Deborah Turbeville lecture presented by The Camera Club of New York

Thursday, November 19th. 7pm The Camera Club of New York hosts photographer Deborah Turbeville at the School of the Visual Arts

From the website:

Deborah Turbeville has been one of the world‘s most important and recognized fashion photographers since the mid–1970‘s when her atmospheric images of small groups of female models in evocative locations first appeared. Her New England upbringing gave her an appreciation of weathered and storied environments, which is still reflected in her work today. She moved to New York City before she was 20 and worked for designer Claire McCardell, a major influence on her career. After working first as an editor at Harper‘s Bazaar and then Mademoiselle, Turbeville became a photographer, originating a highly distinctive style known for its soft–focus use of mise–en–scene and grainy, pointillist printing technique. Her influential, cinematic work appears regularly in American, British, French, Italian and Russian Vogues, and L‘Uomo Vogue and W magazine, among others, and her work has been exhibited internationally. In 2006, a retrospective‚ ”Deborah Turbeville: The Narrative Works 1974 – 1996‚“ was presented at The Wapping Project (London). She has been the recipient of numerous awards, including the Lucie, the ICP Infinity Award, the Alfred Eisenstaedt Award, and the Fashion Group Lifetime Award for Fashion Photography. She has published several books, including her two most recent, Past Imperfect (Steidl, 2009), and Casa No Name (Rizzoli, 2009) The artist will be signing copies of Casa No Name and Past Imperfect.

Location: The School of Visual Arts Amphitheatre 209 E. 23rd Street (2nd and 3rd avenues), 3rd Floor (please bring photo ID)

Free to CCNY members, SVA students, faculty, and staff General admission $10, $5 for other students with ID
