Faculty member Suzanne Joelson forwarded us the following announcement of a book signing that’s taking place this Thursday at Dashwood Books here in Manhattan. (As you’ll see below, the book contains documentation of a film project by photographer Gary Schneider that Suzanne was involved with back in the 1980s.)


Please join us on Thursday November 14th from 6-8pm for a book signing with Gary Schneider.

Dedicated to his friend and mentor Peter Hujar, Salters Cottages is an artist’s book of stills from a short film Schneider made in 1981 at Salters Cottages, a summer seaside cottage community on Long Island, New York. It is a fifteen and a half minute 16mm film. An homage to Jean Genet’s Un Chant d’Amour (1950), Salters Cottages features John Erdman, Peter Hujar, Suzanne Joelson and Gary Stephan as the voyeurs and the observed.
