6:30 p.m."From Above and Beyond: Photography of Unusual Urban Perspectives, Travel, and Science Advocacy," with Navid Baraty, a self-taught, Brooklyn-based photographer.
From the serene and remote landscapes of Alaska, to the steep rooftops of NYC skyscrapers, to the profoundly human drive to reach out into space,this illustrated lecture explores a selection of striking images from the photographer's recent work. Whether the subject is a rural village in India or a vertigo-inducing look down from a 40th floor, his work evokes human stories in a sometimes raw and almost poetic way.
