LAKE PLACID, New York ??” In his newest book, Adirondack Wilderness, Farb has once again turned his camera to his beloved Adirondacks. In collaboration with the Adirondack Nature Conservancy, Farb has produced a book of arresting beauty, which, with clear and straightforward explanations of how nature works, brings the viewer to a new appreciation for the natural world. On Saturday, July 16, at 8:00PM at the High Peaks Information Center at the Adirondak Loj, located at the end of Adirondak Loj Rd., Farb will present a slide show with pictures from his new book.

Farb’s collection of work can be viewed in photographic volumes, important museums, and corporate collections throughout the world. His two volumes of Adirondack photographs, The Adirondacks (Rizzoli, NYC, 1985) and 100 Views of the Adirondacks (Rizzoli, NYC, 1989), established Farb as a leading visual interpreter of the natural world. His work has been on display in the Museum of Modern Art, New York City; the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington, DC; and the Bibliotheque Nationale, Paris, FR. Additionally, Farb has done two volumes of photographs on the Galapagos Islands. His photography essays on the environment have appeared in The New York Times Magazine, National Audubon, Life Magazine, and Adirondack Life.

Farb’s program is part of the ADK’s Saturday Evening Lecture Series, funded with support from Stewart’s Shops. The Saturday Evening Lecture Series offers presentations on natural history, backcountry recreation, and Adirondack history, art, and music. All ADK lectures are free and open to the public.
