STEIDL X STRAND: Mark Peterson + Amy Pereira
Thursday October 27: 7:00PM – 8:00PM
Join Amy Pereira, MSNBC’s photo editor, for a stimulating conversation on the stimulated political landscape as we crash-land in the final weeks of a turbulent presidential election.
Mark Peterson, whose photographs have immortalized moments from the fall of the Berlin Wall through the decades since, will discuss his Political Theater project, which documents the various campaigns that have clashed and intersected in the run-up to November 8th in all their operatic glory. The black-and-white visages of Trump, Clinton, et al display the heightened stakes and unrelenting glare of the would-be presidential spotlight, as well as Peterson’s gift for the split-second reaction that’s made him a modern master.
Buy a copy of Political Theater or a $20 gift card in-store at the event to attend. This event will take place in the Rare Book Room on the Strand's 3rd floor, accessible via the store elevator or at 826 Broadway.
