Focus on Green-Wood: Capturing Monuments and Mausoleums
Saturday, September 7, 2013 from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM (EDT)
In the pursuit of the perfect shot, photographer Colin Winterbottom has climbed to the top of national landmarks, crawled into dark and dusty spaces, and sought out the most dramatic urban landscapes he could find.
This year Winterbottom found a worthy subject in Green-Wood when he was commissioned to bring his award-winning eye to Green-Wood’s forthcoming book Green-Wood at 175: Looking Back/Looking Forward.
Currently, many of his photos of monuments and mausoleums grace the walls in the Museum of the City of New York’s current exhibition on Green-Wood’s 175th anniversary.
On this trolley tour with Winterbottom and Green-Wood Historian Jeff Richman, you’ll return to the scene of the photographer’s Green-Wood shots (including several mausoleum interiors) as he talks inspiration and technique.
Bring your camera and tripod so you can practice as you learn a few tips from a master – or just come along for the ride and the history.
$20 for members of Green-Wood, $25 for non-members.
The Green-Wood Historic Fund's mission is to maintain Green-Wood's monuments and buildings of historical, cultural and architectural significance; advance public knowledge and appreciation of this significance; and preserve the natural habitat and parklands of one of New York City's first green spaces.
