STEIDL X STRAND: Steidl + Sternfeld + Gohlke + Mehta
Wednesday October 26: 7:30PM – 8:30PM
Photographers Joel Sternfeld and Frank Gohlke and writer Suketu Mehta launch their new book Landscape as Longing, a collection of photographs which is all about one of the most diverse communities in the world - Queens. The project of capturing all things ‘Queens’ took well over a year to complete and features everything from bodegas to temples and apartments to shorelines. Each photographer focuses on different aspects of the borough and with a powerful essay by acclaimed writer Suketu Mehta they suceed in creating a vast and detailed representation of Queens.
The two photographers and writer will be in conversation with Gerhard Steidl, founder of the German-based publishing company STEIDL.
