Aperture Conversations

Young New York

Wednesday, June 19

7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

BAM Fisher 321 Ashland Place Brooklyn , NY 11217

TICKETED

Join Ethan James Green with three of his subjects and collaborators, Dara Allen, Marcs Goldberg, and Matt Holmes, for a wide-ranging discussion about beauty, portraiture, and the legacies of queer and trans representation fifty years after the Stonewall uprising. Moderated by Michael Schulman, arts and culture writer for The New Yorker and contributor to Young New York.

Green’s first monograph, Young New York, presents a series of striking black-and-white portraits of the city’s queer scene-makers, and depicts a gloriously diverse cast of models, artists, designers, nightlife icons, and gender binary–flouting muses to the fashion world and beyond. Celebrated for his photography in Vanity FairVogue, and Another Man, for Young New York, Green photographed his close friends and community in the Lower East Side for over three years, and his humanist approach, inspired by Diane Arbus and August Sander, transcends the trends of the moment.
