Join us at Aperture Gallery for the star-studded U.S. launch of A Moment. Master Photographers: Portraits by Michael Somoroff featuring author and curator William A. Ewing in conversation with Ralph Gibson, Mary Ellen Mark, and Duane Michals.
Michael Somoroff’s book of portraits includes some of the greatest photographers of the twentieth century, most of them taken over thirty years ago and never before published, will have its official launch at Wednesday night’s event. William A. Ewing, who contributes an essay to the book, will be in conversation with some of the master photographers in the book, Ralph Gibson, Mary Ellen Mark, and Duane Michals. Immediately following the conversation is a book party and signing.
A Moment.

It also also includes Lillian Bassman, Brassaï, Elliot Erwitt, Andreas Feininger, André Kertész, Arnold Newman, Helmut Newton, and Jacques Henri Lartique, among others.
