“Coney Island 40 Years”: Artist’s Talk and Book Signing with Photographer Harvey Stein, Thursday, September 20

Running Boy in Rain, 2005. Photograph by Harvey Stein.

Join us for an evening with renowned documentary photographer Harvey Stein, who will discuss the work in his most recent book, Coney Island 40 Years, and an exhibit of the same name (click link for slideshow) currently on view in the Kreps Gallery through October 27. A reception will precede the talk and book signing; the event is free and open to the public. Stein’s images, shot during hundreds of trips spanning more than four decades, constitute a visual document of an iconic American place that is rapidly changing—Coney Island 40 Years, he says, “is a meditation on time, history, persistence and longevity (of both Coney Island and myself), fate, and public social behavior.”

Thursday, September 20: reception, 6 p.m.; talk and book signing, 7–9 p.m.
