Eugene Richards Presentation and Book Signing at the Bronx Documentary Center

EUGENE RICHARDS

Presentation and Book Signing
Saturday, August 23, 6PM

Celebrate legendary photographer Eugene Richards’s new book Red Ball of a Sun Slipping Down at the BDC. Richards will present two short multi-media pieces and sign and personalize copies of the book.

Red Ball of a Sun Slipping Down is a book of photographs and writing that speaks of impoverishment,memory,and the preciousness of life.

Black-and-white photographs made long years ago but never before published are interwoven with recent color photographs and, in turn, with a short story that relates Richards’ relationship with an impoverished delta family as well as a growing awareness of his own aging and mortality.

Free and open to the public.
