The Camera Club of New York presents an artist talk and book signing with photographer Janelle Lynch. Lynch will discuss her recent work, including the work from her book “Los Jardines de Mexico,” published by Radius Books last year. The varied “gardens” in Janelle Lynch’s work are places of natural regeneration, whether they are in secluded forests or in the middle of Mexico City. After the talk, there will be a Q&A session and book signing, with books available for sale.
Camera Club of New York (CCNY), co-founded in 1884 by Alfred Stieglitz, is a rare survivor among New York City arts organizations, and it is as vital now as it ever was. It is experiencing a period of dynamic renewal, and the Darkroom Residency Program is one of its recent successes. With support from the Jerome Foundation, CCNY initiated a new facet of the program in 2013: solo shows in its gallery for each Darkroom Resident. CCNY also presents guest-curated exhibitions, a lecture-series at the School of Visual Arts, an annual Zine and Self-Published Photo Book Fair, and a Conversations series, It offers classes, hosts a Guest Blog, and produces a monthly newsletter.
