If you have never been to the National Arts Club, this event is worth coming to just experience the ghost of New York’s glory days.  And I have heard very good things about this project – it should an interesting talk.

Join Magnum photographer Paul Fusco for a discussion on his illustrious career, coinciding with the release of Paul Fusco: RFK (Aperture, 2008), published during the fortieth anniversary of Robert F. Kennedy’s assassination in Los Angeles while campaigning for the presidential nomination. This long-awaited follow-up to Fusco’s acclaimed RFK Funeral Train, a body of work heralded as a contemporary classic, features over seventy never-before-seen images, many selected from the untapped treasure trove of slides that comprise the Library of Congress’s Look Magazine Photograph Collection. Paul Fusco will discuss the spirit behind these powerful images that capture the thousands of Americans from every section of society—black, white, rich, poor—who stood by the railroad tracks to pay their final respects to Bobby Kennedy.
