On Wednesday, September 20th, at 6:30PM, join photographers Darin Mickey and Michael Vahrenwald as they present work from their new photobook, “Glacial Erratics.” The photographers spent two years photographing the north Bronx, from Kingsbridge to Riverdale, creating a visual record tracing the area’s diverse cultural, economic and geological histories.
Their work is interwoven into a loop, a book which can be started from one end, read through, flipped over and read in the other direction. It’s accompanied by a series of texts by Vahrenwald—accounts of local histories, landmarks and current events that mix facts and fiction.
