If you weren’t able to make it last night to the lecture by Larry Fink, you missed out on a real special event.  After a few canceled and delayed flights he made it to the lecture hall with 5 minutes to spare.  He whipped out his harmonica and began to serenade the packed audience until his digital slide set-up was just right.

The first half of the lecture he discussed his project, The Democrats following around Barack Obama on the campaign trail and ended with a retrospective of much of the work he has done over the past 40 years.

Please join the PRC this Thursday, December 11th at 7pm for an interactive lecture with the prominent fine art and editorial photographer Larry Fink.

For over 30 years, photographer Larry Fink has been actively capturing the visual vernacular of the people and events that surrounds us.  From his earliest work in his books Social Graces, Boxing and Runway, to his most recent project The Democrats, Fink brings these social interactions out of the crowd and into our homes.

Believe me, I’m the last person who wants to rush the summer along (despite today’s oppressive heat and no home air conditioning). But having just confirmed our fall speakers I can now say that I won’t be quite so despondent after the last leaves have fallen. We have the pleasure of hosting some pretty amazing artists this fall and I wanted to share the news.

Below is the list of folks and the corresponding dates of their lectures. But please keep in mind that dates may be subject to change so always check back to, for the most current information.

Polaroid Spotlight Lecture featuring Barbara Crane
Thursday, October 23
The depth and breadth of work Barbara has produced is staggering. There’s not many people out there who can move so deftly between styles, materials, subjects, formats, etc., etc., as Barbara. Truly a Renaissance photographer!

Paul Fusco

Thursday, November 13
One of the great Magnum photographers, Paul Fusco has traveled the world covering the stories that have defined our generation, including Robert F. Kennedy’s assasination and subsequent funeral train procession. He’ll share pictures from that story, which are included in his new book Paul Fusco: RFK, soon to be released by Aperture. A show of this work is currently up at Danziger Projects and was recently featured in the New York Times Magazine.

Check out Fink’s current show and latest body of work, The Democrats, at Pace/MacGill Gallery. He’s applied that candid aesthetic, that we all came to know and love from his work covering black tie affairs in New York City, to the recent Democratic nomination campaign trail.
