DESCRIPTION

Jonathan Weinberg, curator of “The Piers” exhibition will host a conversation with local photographer Efrain John Gonzalez who will present a slideshow of his work depicting the life and culture along the old West Side Highway, the abandoned piers, and the Meat Packing district of New York City during the 80s and 90s. Gonzalez is a photographer who records the unusual, the erotic, the unique, the wild and slightly crazy, from the world of body modifications to the universe of radical S&M, from sensual beauty of the flesh, to raw sexual desires. An internationally published photographer who for the past 30 years has been seeking real life images that tells a story of people finding the path to their souls.
