LAST MINUTE POST! I've been set on going to this for well over a week... and have completely spaced on posting about it. Michal Chelbin's book signing and talk.
Her work is wonderful and I'm looking forward to hearing her speak.

"Israeli born artist Michal Chelbin will discuss the work in her first monograph, Strangely Familiar: Acrobats, Athletes, and Other Traveling Troupes, (Aperture). In her sympathetic pictures of young performers and wrestlers from small towns in Ukraine, Eastern Europe, England, and Israel, Chelbin offers a glimpse into worlds both strange and familiar. The settings, costumes, and even some of the subjects themselves may seem exotic, but her portraits look beyond that to capture a transcendent sense of individual character."
