ARIEL GOLDBERG: The Photographer

The Photographer: slideshow and reading by Ariel Goldberg. The Photographer, as both a project and a character, restlessly shifts perspectives in order to reach inside the language of taking and looking at pictures. Initially presented as "press conferences" in the form of publications and performances devoid of images, this new installment unveils The Photographer's most intimate study to date: a re-immersion into the act of photographing. Ariel Goldberg's slideshow of color street photography will run alongside a reading of essays on the raw experience of narrating the photographic act in its most mundane and ubiquitous moments. This performance is made possible, in part, by a 2012-13 grant from the Franklin Furnace Fund supported by the Jerome Foundation; the Lambent Foundation Fund of Tides Foundation; and by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
CLIMATE CHANGE FOR THE BETTER
Membership Campaign, 2013-2014
We are thrilled to collaborate on this year’s membership campaign with Dr. Annie Hauck-Lawson, founder of Brooklyn Mompost; and Mr. Eric Laufer, President and Founder of Laufer Wind Group. Annie is a registered dietitian, whose family practices have been 'green' in Brooklyn for four generations; she is currently the Greening Director at Poly Prep Country Day School. Knowing that garbage going to landfills turns into greenhouse gasses, Annie loves turning that vicious cycle around—and she's not afraid to share the love! Eric holds a degree in Aeronautical and Astronautical Engineering and provides wind energy consultations to ordinary consumers as well as large international energy conglomerates.
