Joel Meyerowitz talk at Aperture
Tuesday September 29th, 2009
Join master photographer Joel Meyerowitz for a talk and book signing and discover the hidden pockets of wilderness that still exist within the urban environs of New York City. This event takes place on the occasion of the publication of Legacy: The Preservation of Wilderness in New York City Parks (Aperture, October 2009). This compelling body of work is the result of a unique commission Meyerowitz received from the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation to document, interpret, and celebrate one of the city's greatest legacies: nearly nine thousand acres of parks in the five boroughs that still exist close to their original pristine state, as well as areas within parks that have been left to revert to wilderness.
An exhibition of this series will be on view at the Museum of the City of New York, October 9, 2009-March 7, 2010.
