Join renowned Magnum photographer Paul Fusco for a discussion of his work, including photographs from his upcoming book Paul Fusco: RFK , published by Aperture in October 2008. A complement to Fusco’s earlier work, RFK Funeral Train, this new monograph offers up many never-before-seen photographs. The arresting images present, in brilliant color, a cross-section of grieving Americans as they stood vigil to the passing train. Fusco covered the funeral procession while a staff photographer for Look magazine (1957-1971).
Soon after, Fusco joined Magnum Photos and has traveled the globe to shoot a wide range of stories. Included among these is a long-term project documenting the lasting effects of the Chernobyl disaster. His work is also actively sought by numerous publications including Time, Life, Newsweek, the New York Times Magazine, Mother Jones, and has been exhibited by major museums, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, New York. Copies of Paul Fusco: RFK will be available for sale at the lecture and the artist will be on hand to sign them.
