Belmont hosts photographer for screening, book signing
Belmont Village Senior Living Westwood is hosting screening and book signing of “Children: Behind the Lens Street Photography: New York City in the 1940s and 1950s” on Saturday, June 11. Photographer Marin Elkort will be there for the film screening at 1:30 p.m. and a book signing at 2:30 p.m.
In the 1940s and 1950s, Elkort traveled the streets of New York City with his camera in search of the perfect picture. His indelible images remind viewers that the human experience can be joyous.
“A beautiful photograph, like a beautiful poem, always contains a mystery, an elusive and haunting nucleus that makes us return again to probe its depths, hoping to winnow yet another insight,” Elkort said.
Belmont Village Senior Living Westwood is located at 10475 Wilshire Blvd. For information and to RSVP, call (310)475-7501.
