Alex Webb & Rebecca Norris Webb will sign Brooklyn: The City Within (Aperture, 2019). The duo has been photographing Brooklyn, one of the most dynamic and ethnically diverse places on the planet, for over five years. Alex Webb has traversed every corner of the borough, exploring its tremendous diversity. In contrast, Rebecca Norris Webb photographed “the city within the city within the city,” the green heart of Brooklyn—the Botanic Garden, GreenWood Cemetery, and Prospect Park, where Brooklynites of all walks of life cross paths as they find solace. Together, their photographs of Brooklyn tell a larger American story, one that touches on immigration, identity, and home.
Jessica Lange will sign copies of her new book Highway 61 (powerHouse, 2019) in which she reveals her deep connection to this iconic route. Raised in Northern Minnesota, Lange has travelled, countless times, the length of Highway 61 as it originates at the Canadian border, near Grand Portage and runs 1,600 miles along the Mississippi River though the American Midwest and South, rolling through eight states, down to New Orleans.
Jeff Mermelstein will sign two of his books. Arena (TBW Books, 2019) was shot during a four-year tenure that began in 2012 on the day Barclays Center in Brooklyn first opened its doors to the public. Charged with the commission to photograph over 350 events held in Barclays’ first years, Arena marks a particularly prolific period of Jeff Mermelstein’s career. “Through iPhone photos that first appeared on Instagram,” Hardened (Morel Books, 2019) “explores a world of everyday neurosis, minor catastrophe, panic, charm, indiscretion, revelation, fallen pride, deflated bravado, pricked narcissism, and unexpected affection.”
John Lehr will sign The Island Position (Mack, 2019), which explores the facades of American commercial spaces that are threatened by e-commerce. Rushing to remain relevant, storeowners emblazon their windows and walls with anything that will grab attention: tessellations of quick-fading ads, haphazard product displays, and desperate, hand-scrawled invitations. Lehr is not interested in what is for sale. He is interested in what is at stake.
