Book Signing with Darren Bradley
Arts District Location

In a photo presentation, photographer Darren Bradley discusses the challenges and rewards of photographing mid-century modern architecture today, and will highlight some of his work photographing projects by architects such as William Krisel, William Cody, and Richard Neutra. He will also be available to sign the book William Krisel’s Palm Springs: The Language of Modernism. This first major monograph chronicling the work and architectural philosophy of William Krisel features examples and insights from Krisel’s own papers, culled from his personal collection as well as the extensive archives of the Getty Research Institute. Darren Bradley’s contribution to the book was extensive: included are his contemporary photographs of many Krisel residences and he oversaw the restoration and post-production of the archival photographs.

Copies of William Krisel’s Palm Springs: The Language of Modernism will be available for purchase at the event.
