DEAR MR. PICASSO:  An Illustrated Love Affair with Freedom
Conversation with Fred Baldwin & Fred Ritchin and a Book Signing at Aperture Gallery December 4.
Noted photographer and co-founder of FotoFest, Fred Baldwin has recently published his memoir, Dear Mr. Picasso: An Illustrated Love Affair with Freedom (Schilt Publishing). The book begins with Baldwin's encounter with Pablo Picasso in 1955, a life-changing event that emboldened Baldwin to embrace a peripatetic life as a photojournalist. His remarkable "picture stories" led him to locations where few or no photographers had gone before. Baldwin's book is illustrated with hundreds of black-and-white and color photographs from his vast archive.

In a conversation with Fred Ritchin, Dean Emeritus of the International Center of Photography (ICP) School, Baldwin will show images and recount some of the extraordinary experiences of his career. Books will be available for purchase. A book signing will immediately follow the discussion.
