THE SEVENTIES Book talk & Signing at Book Soup

Join photographer Ira Resnick for an evening all about the personalities that defined a decade, in conversation with film critic Jeffroy Lyons, at the beautiful Rizzoli Bookstore in Manhattan. 

THE SEVENTIES re-creates Resnick's path through a decade of tremendous change, in the world and in himself—from film school at NYU, through travels in Israel and Canada, to the cultural ferment of Mill Valley and the glamour of Hollywood. Along the way, Resnick’s work as a professional photographer brought him in contact with the leading personalities of his time:

Musicians like the Rolling Stones, Stevie Nicks, and James Taylor

Actors and directors like Sissy Spacek, Warren Beatty, and Martin Scorsese

Comedians like Steve Martin, Gilda Radner, John Belushi and Bill Murray

Athletes like Muhammad Ali, Billie Jean King, and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

Politicians like Jimmy Carter, Jerry Brown, and Bella Abzug

 

Resnick’s photographs of these iconic figures—many never seen since their original publication in magazines like Rolling Stone , People , and Us—will fascinate anyone with an interest in popular culture. And his personal journey will resonate with anyone who came of age in the 1970s.
