Out Loud in the Library! featuring Photographer Mel Stones
September 12, 5:30pm - 7:00pm
Windward Campus, Hale Laâ€˜akea (Library)
Stones will present and discuss images from her book Thatâ€™s a Crazy One. As a teenage photographer, Stones had inside access to the NYC youth culture of the 1990s. Stonesâ€™ talk will explore questions about reality and illusion, the power of photography, and the artistâ€™s responsibility to her subjects.
Born and raised in Brooklyn, Mel Stones photographed this collection of images while still in high school. Her circle of friends were skaters and punks; a few inspired and acted in Larry Clarkâ€™s film KIDS. The photo negatives sat in Stonesâ€™ archive for over 20 years until she and co-author Highlyann published the book as a photographic memoir of their teens.
Free and open to the public
