Palm Springs – The Good Life Goes on with Nancy Baron
February 21, 2017 | 10:00 am - 11:00 am |
Fine art documentary photographer Nancy Baron will share her spare, jewel-toned photographic impressions of her part-time residence from her second monograph, Palm Springs > The Good Life Goes On (Kehrer Verlag), in which she documents, with a positive bias, her ongoing and endless discoveries of her second home and its community of midcentury modern enthusiasts. This large and tight-knit group of self-proclaimed modernists are committed to the midcentury modern life style and the preservation of its architecture. Their homes, cars, and clothes pay homage to the carefree, post-World War II time in US history that glows warmly in their vintage rear view mirrors. Nancy’s informal images casually document the carefree Palm Springs lifestyle as though captured in passing, in the seemingly effortless way that most things happen in Palm Springs.
Nancy’s images of Palm Springs have been featured in The New York Times, Mother Jones, Architectural Digest Italy, Palm Springs Life, Palm Springs Style, Conde Nast Traveler, Fast Company and CNN, amongst others. The presentation will be followed by a Q & A and a book signing.
