The New York Art Book Fair


From September 19 to 22 I will be participating in The New York Art Book Fair. This year I will share a table with Joachim Schmid in the geodesic dome located in the courtyard of MoMA PS1.

Three new books will be available: The Man of the Crowd, The Gospel of the Photographer, and The Kingdom. There will be a postcard set offered with Highlights in the History of The Invisible Book. And the 2013 release of In this Dark Wood will be launched by J&L Books.

On September 20 at 4PM, Chris Burnett and I will talk about In this Dark Wood and present a glimpse into the unique artifact that is the source of the book’s images: the Selle collection of more than one million street vendor photographs taken in San Francisco from the 1940s until the 1970s. A celebration of ephemeral images in a mix of slideshow, reading, and lecture. Presented by J&L Books in The Classroom, curated by David Senior. The Classroom is in the main building at MoMA PS1.

At our table we will also have Chris Burnett signing The Rest of the World on September 20 at 6PM.
