Author Talk: Rick Schatzberg “The Boys”

Date: 12/16/2020
Time: 5:30 pm-6:30 pm

When two of his old friends died unexpectedly, Rick Schatzberg spent the next two years capturing through his lens, the remaining group of his childhood ‘brothers.” He collected vintage photos that  tell their shared story and pairs them with large format portraits that connect the boy to the man. This book talk with the photographer will visit themes of aging, loss and deep friendship.
