Journalist and photographer Frank Van Riper will discuss his latest book, Recovered Memory: New York and Paris 1960-1980 (just out in the U.S. with Daylight Books). Van Riper’s striking black and white photographs, spanning twenty years, coupled with his eloquent texts, capture the 20th-century romance and grit of New York more than half a century ago, and Paris, some forty years ago.
This work is a meditation on time and place, prior to the internet and 24/7 news; when a ride on the New York subway cost 15 cents; the smell of fresh-baked baguettes wafted over nearly every Parisian neighborhood; and the Coney Island parachute ride still thrilled thousands.Buy tickets/get more info now
