Frank Van Riper speaks about his latest book of photographs, Recovered Memory: New York & Paris 1960-1980

2-5-19 Frank Van Riper, a journalist at the New York Daily News for 20 years, followed by 19 years as photography columnist at the Washington Post.  Mr. Van Riper spoke about his latest book of photographs, Recovered Memory: New York & Paris 1960-1980, and showed images from the book.  Mr. Van Riper's book is “a meditation on time and place: before the internet and 24/7 news; when one could visit the Eiffel Tower without seeing police and automatic weapons, when a ride on the New York subway cost 15 cents, when the smell of fresh-baked baguettes wafted over nearly every Parisian neighborhood, and when the Coney Island parachute ride still thrilled thousands.”
