Discussion | The Passionate Photographer Critique (online)


It feels good to hear nice things about your photos from friends, relatives and fellow photographers, but pats on the back are far less useful than meaningful, constructive criticism. Putting our photography out into the world—seeking opinions and critique we can use to improve and push ourselves forward is essential to our development as photographers. In this session, Steve Simon, "The Passionate Photographer," will give an honest evaluation of the photographs submitted—talking about what works, what doesn’t and how photographs can be improved. You will learn as much from the critiques of other photographer’s images as you will about critiques of your own images.

Discussion | A Sanctuary in the Storm: Carl Lutz and the Rescue of Budapest's Jews


Budapest, 1944: Vice Consul Carl Lutz and the Swiss Legation of Budapest started the largest diplomatic operation to rescue Jews during WWII. Thanks to an ingenious system of safe-conduct papers and residential buildings put under consular protection, Carl Lutz, who had acted as a protective power representing interests of the U.S. and UK in Hungary, sheltered and saved tens of thousands of Jews. Frederic Hayat, vice president of the Switzerland-based Carl Lutz Society, will deliver a presentation about Lutz and will be joined by Agnes Hirschi, Lutz's stepdaughter, and Charles Gati, a Survivor saved by Lutz's efforts.

Opening Reception | Anthony Bellov: 47 Fifth: Up Close and Personal Through Photographs


Taken during research for his series of talks exploring the architectural details and clues of past use of the venue, these highly personal images of oft-overlooked aspects of the building excite and challenge the viewer to explore their own perceptions and assumptions of this unique structure. The images are by architectural historian Anthony Bellov.   Multi-faceted Anthony Bellov is an award-winning videographer, pianist, tenor, singing instructor, and architectural historian with a bachelor’s degree in Architecture from Pratt Institute and a master’s in Museum Leadership from Bank Street College of Education. His video explorations of the world-renown Merchant’s House Museum, in New York’s NoHo have generated great excitement among historic house and architectural preservation advocates. He says, “Successful architecture is a happy manifestation of function expressed as geometry and detail.” Through his still images of buildings, Bellov explores the overarching balance of form with the radiant exclamation point of detail.

Talk | The Evolution of an 1853 Fifth Avenue Mansion


Esteemed architectural sleuth Anthony Bellov continues his popular series exploring the historic fabric and architectural and social history of the Hawley Mansion, now the venue. He'll explore the stunning architecture of the double parlors and delve deeply into the former appearance and functions of the Second Floor, now housing a world-renown 1917 library, revealing unnoticed details of past lives in the process. Built in 1853 for the wealthy Hawley Family, the elegant structure had already been a residence for 64 years when it was bought it in 1917 and remodeled it as their private clubhouse, thereby saving it from demolition. Now the oldest surviving mansion on iconic Fifth Avenue and a revered NYC landmark, pursuing clues to its fascinating transformation is a grand saga in itself -- if you know where to look.

Film | Dimka (2022): Transgender in Russia


The story of an intimate friendship between the filmmaker and a Russian transgender grappling with gender identity. In every respect a paradoxical figure, Dimka herself is a study of an obsession with physical beauty, isolation, and dictatorship. At once graphic and poetic, this verite film is a portrait of a bold individual that lives out her nonconformity, as she embraces ideologies that might be her own peril. Director: Victoria Campbell 90 min. Following the screening, the director will be present for a Q&A.

Book Discussion | Life on Delay: Making Peace with a Stutter


In the fall of 2019, John Hendrickson wrote a groundbreaking story for The Atlantic about Joe Biden’s decades-long journey with stuttering, as well as his own. The article went viral, reaching readers around the world and altering the course of Hendrickson’s life. Overnight, he was forced to publicly confront an element of himself that still caused him great pain. He soon learned he wasn’t alone with his feelings: strangers who stutter began sending him their own personal stories, something that continues to this day. Now, in this reported memoir, Hendrickson takes us deep inside the mind and heart of a stutterer as he sets out to answer lingering questions about himself and his condition that he was often too afraid to ask.

Book Discussion | 2 New Books: Parenting with an Accent / My Mother's Secret (online)


Award-winning authors Alina Adams and Masha Rumer join together on our virtual events stage to present their latest works, writing history as it happens. While Adams's latest novel, My Mother's Secret: A Novel of the Jewish Autonomous Region, covers a little known aspect of recent history, Masha's latest memoir, Parenting with an Accent, provides insights into multicultural dating, raising bilingual kids, dealing with discrimination, and more. Their writing overlaps in examining intergenerational trauma, including in the former Soviet Union, and how it has affected generations of immigrants in the U.S. and how Russia’s war in Ukraine is impacting families around the world, including the writers' own families.
