Night at the Met, Fotovision Books, 2009.
Photographs by Larry Fink.
Conceived, designed and edited by Melanie Light, Ken Light and Adrianne Koteen.
In this beautifully produced special edition book with signed black and white chromogenic print, photographer Larry Fink presents an interesting look at the ritual of a donor party at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC. It was the Apollo Circle Benefit in 2007. The subjects of the book are the guests who attended the party and by so doing became the focus of an interactive exhibition; images of the revelers were captured by Larry Fink and projected onto the walls of the museum throughout the night.
100 signed and numbered special edition books with a signed black and white chromogenic print are available. A choice between one of two prints are available with this little gem of a book. There are still some special editions available with either print for $325 -- email me if you are interested: melanie [a] melanielight[dot]com
The Cleveland Art Museum opened a show in August of 2012: DIY Photographers and Books. "Night at the Met" was in this exhibit and now a part of the permanent collection.
