Lee Friedlander to Give First Public Talk in 30 Years

Posted by on Wednesday May 31, 2017 | Events

Master photographer Lee Friedlander will be speaking at the New York Public Library on June 26. This will be the photographer’s first public talk in 30 years. He’ll be joined on stage in conversation with his grandson, writer Giancarlo T. Roma. Roma and Friedlander recently relaunched Haywire, the publishing company that Friedlander started in the 1970s.

Tickets for the talk, “Lee Friedlander and Giancarlo T. Roma: Passion Projects,” are now on sale for $40. For those who can’t make the live event, NYPL promises to Livestream the talk. (The link to the Livestream is here).

Friedlander, three-time winner of a Guggenheim Foundation grant, was awarded the Infinity Award for Lifetime Achievement from ICP in 2006. At 82, he is as productive as ever. He’s published four books with Yale University Press since 2015. The most recent, Street: The Human Clay, is a collection of street photos he has made over the past 50 years.
