(via Aperture) Sylvia Plachy, the first photographer assigned to shoot the opening photograph of the legendary Goings On About Town section of The New Yorker, will discuss key images from this exclusive assignment, featured in her latest Aperture book, "Goings On About Town: Photographs for The New Yorker" (co-published with The New Yorker, 2007). Plachy explores the city’s dynamics from the inside out, from the Mermaid Parade to camels walking through town on the way to the circus, revealing the vital and often wacky creativity that energizes New York around the clock. The images are quintessentially Sylvia Plachy, and quintessentially New York. Plachy will also show and discuss other never before published images from her illustrious 40-year career.
