KEENE VALLEY - Keene Valley Library's Summer Lecture Series 2012 comes to a close with the presentation of two recent multi-media works by Nathan Farb, noted photographer of the Adirondacks, on Monday, Aug. 27 at 7:30 p.m. at the library.
One, "Eisen," is a meditation on the experience of family. The second piece is Farb's in-progress video that looks at Hurricane Irene and the effects of its natural violence on our valley communities and the high backcountry.
Farb grew up in Lake Placid and has been examining the Adirondack Landscape for over 50 years. His 1985 book, "The Adirondacks", became the standard by which Adirondack photography is measured. Farb also lived and worked in New York City for many years where he was well known for his avant garde multimedia work.
Farb is a former professor of photography and mixed media at Rutgers University. He has worked and lived at his studio in Jay for the past twenty years.
Admission is free. For more information, call the Library at 518-576-4335.
