Photographic conspirator William Greiner is having a book signing and lecture this Saturday in NYC at 1 pm at Klompching. For those of you who aren’t subscribers his blog it is a nice marriage of photographs, words, and content. Oh, and I’ve been reminded by the master himself that the show opens Thursday night! Go for me!
FALLEN PARADISE (New Orleans 1995 — 2005)
Photographs by William Greiner
May 1 — June 25, 2008
OPENING RECEPTION: May 1, 6pm — 8pm
William Greiner, born and raised in New Orleans, knows the city intimately. He presents here, a ‘snapshot’ of the decade preceding hurricane Katrina, in which he evidences the city’s abandonment before natural disaster struck. Informed by the tradition of the new color photography developed by Eggleston, Greiner interrogates this urbanscape with a preceptive eye and a highly crafted use of the photographic frame, color and formal line.
