Renowned photographer and ICP faculty, Joan Liftin will be here to discuss her extensive career in photography and photo editing. She’ll share work from her book Drive-ins, a look at the culture of American outdoor movies and her new book Marseille, which Artbook calls “a love letter from an American to France’s oldest and second largest city.”
Copies of Marseilles will be available for purchase. A book signing and reception will follow the lecture.
Portfolios of Joan Liftin’s photographs have appeared in the New York Times Magazine, Der Spiegel, Aperture, and Creative Photography. Her work is included in the collections of the Center for Creative Photography, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Cleveland Museum of Art and Princeton University, among others.
Her earlier book, Drive-ins, a look at the culture of American outdoor movies, was published in 2004. A noted educator, she was Chair of the Documentary Program at the International Center of Photography in New York from 1989 to 2001 and also Director of Magnum Photos library. Among the many books she has edited are Mary Ellen Mark’s Falkland Road, Charles Harbutt’s Departures and Arrivals, and Andrea Stern’s Inheritance. She has had recent one-woman shows in Oaxaca, Mexico; New York City and Hollywood, and an exhibit of her new book, Marseille is currently running in Rome.
