“The Bridge Man,” photographer Dave Frieder, has climbed 20 of New York’s great bridges to photograph them in intimate and distinctive ways. His photographs are now published in the book The Magnificent Bridges of New York City.
Frieder is set to discusses his approach to capturing the engineering behind and supporting the bridges at a lecture at the New York Public Library Branch on Roosevelt Island, on Thursday, December 19th, at 6:30 pm.
The lecture is free and open to the public. It is the second in Roosevelt Island Historical Society’s annual series of fall lectures, which is supported by funds provided by Amalgamated Bank, Roosevelt Island Operating Corporation’s Public Purpose Fund, and New York City Council Member Ben Kallos, with funding from the New York City Department of Youth and Community Development.
More information is available on the Roosevelt Island Historical Society’s website.
