Ed Keating will sign copies of his newest book from Damiani, Main Street: The Lost Dream of Route 66, which comprises 84 photographs taken along Route 66 from 2000 to 2011. Also known as the "Mother Road," Route 66 was the only direct road to California, until the 1950s when the interstate highway system created a bypass that shut off its lifeblood, forcing thousands of shops and motels into bankruptcy over the next 50 years.
Betsy Karel will sign copies of her newest book from Steidl Verlag, America’s Stage: Times Square, which uses five New York City blocks as a metaphor for urban America today. Her premise is that many of the major trends of our society are present in Times Square: globalism, consumerism, ubiquitous sexualization, hucksterism, surveillance, narcissism. All are compressed and amplified here.
Charles H. Traub will sign copies of his newest book, Taradiddle, published by Damiani. This volume, comprised of photographs Traub took in locations such as Dubai, Shanghai, Tunis, Buenos Aires, Budapest, and Moscow, to name but a few, is a collection of quotidian objects that become elevated to the level of incisive social commentary when photographed by Traub. The book has 100 color plates, along with an essay by David Campany. Traub will also be signing copies of his previous book, Lunchtime, published by Damiani in 2015.
Judy Glickman Lauder will sign copies of her newest book, Beyond the Shadows: The Holocaust and the Danish Exception, published by Aperture. Beyond the Shadows responds to the mass murder of Jews during the Holocaust, while telling the uplifting story of how the citizens and leadership of Denmark, under occupation and at tremendous risk, defied the Third Reich to transport the country’s Jews to safety in Sweden.
Judith Mara Gutman will sign copies of her newest book, Lewis Hine: When Innovation Was King, co-published by Steidl and Howard Greenberg Library, which highlights the work that Hine produced via commission by the National Research Project to document the industries that the US government hoped would lift the country out of the Great Depression. Gutman's essay considers the photographs in the context of the economic conditions of the time and the artistic and technological innovations of the era.
On view through January 5th are the exhibitions: Edward Burtynsky: Anthropocene and Vivian Maier: The Color Work.
