Events Ashore: An-My Lê
Saturday, November 1
Join BookCourt in Brooklyn for a signing of photographer An-My Lê‘s latest book, Events Ashore. In this body of work, Lê emerges as a master colorist, employing the large-format color negative to powerful effect to capture the sometimes surreal, often surprisingly beautiful vistas of the military at work, with an emphasis on descriptive and compositional precision and subtlety of palette.
