The Rediscovered Photographs of Tom Palumbo

Join biographer Patricia Bosworth as she discusses Dreamer with a Thousand Thrills: The Rediscovered Photographs of Tom Palumbo; her loving tribute to celebrated fashion photographer Tom Palumbo with Mary Engel.

“He was one of a kind, my Tomaso…He wanted to take photographs nobody else had ever taken – to prove that he could. So it wasn’t surprising that when we got together, he would talk off and on about doing a book of some of these photographs: ‘a book about my life in pictures.'” -Patricia Bosworth, from the Introduction

Patricia Bosworth is the author of The Men in My Life: A Memoir of Love and Art in 1950s Manhattan, and biographies of Montgomery Clift, Marlon Brando, Jane Fonda, and the photographer Diane Arbus.
Mary Engel is an award winning filmmaker, the director of the Orkin/Engel Film and the president of the American Photography Archives Group.
