New York City Event - Builder Levy at SEIU Local 32

On February 9, 2006 (6 PM - 8 PM) the Tamiment Library is sponsoring a slideshow and book party for Builder Levy who will be discussing his recently published book "Builder Levy: Photographer." Levy's photographs eloquently depict "working people living real lives." Many were made in inner-city communities where Levy was a teacher of at-risk adolescents for 35 years. Others were taken in the hills, "hollers" and mines of the coal fields of Appalachia. Many depict civil rights and peace demonstrations; others are of ordinary people from the Russian steppes to Cuba. According to photographer Duane Michals Levy is in "the grand tradition of Lewis Hine and Dorothea Lange."

Builder Levy's slide show and book talk will be held on Thursday, February 9, 2006 at SEIU Local 32 B.J's auditorium; 101 Avenue of the Americas, 22nd floor (between Grand and Watt Streets one block North of Canal Street). Use the Canal Street subway stop on the A, C, 1 or 9 trains. For more information please contact Michael.Nash@nyu.edu, 212-998-2428.
