“In conjunction with her recently released publication About Love (Radius Books, 2011), renowned photographer Gay Block will present an overview of her career, talk about how her work as a portrait photographer has given her insight into life and love, and sign copies of her new book.

Block began photographing in 1973 in her native Houston, where she made portraits of people in her upscale Jewish community. In the early 1980s, the artist’s work expanded to include portraits of people at the Jewish Community Center swimming pool, girls at a summer camp in upstate New York, and images of Jewish life in Miami’s South Beach. Among her many projects, Block is particularly known for the critically acclaimed series Bertha Alyce: Mother exPosed, a book, exhibition, and award-winning video, and Rescuers: Portraits of Moral Courage in the Holocaust, a book, film, and exhibition that traveled to more than fifty venues. The artist has continued her series Camp Girls by rephotographing the campers twenty-five years later. Block’s work is in the collections of many institutions, including the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Center for Creative Photography, Tucson; and the New Mexico Museum of Art, Santa Fe.”
