i3 Photo Lecture: Bruce Polin
Apr 21, 2020, 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Portraitist Bruce Polin is best known for his ongoing project “Deep Park,” based on a series of chance portraits taken in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park. Working with a large format 8 x 10 camera, Polin constructs private spaces within public space. In his own words, “Prospect Park is really the optimal microcosm of New York’s profound diversity. My use of its natural assets as the backdrop somehow imparts additional political resonance, given that our public lands and environmental protections seem to be eroding by the minute, and climate-change denial is now, incredibly, a governing principle.”
