When: 06/14/2019, 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Cinematographer/photographer Don Lenzer presents a new photographic portfolio, “Sag Noir,” honoring the Sag Harbor Cinema, at Julie Keyes Gallery in Sag Harbor. This boxed set of 14 works represents observations of the old cinema after the December 2016 fire. Lenzer spent long and careful hours going through the cinema, finding an eerie beauty in its devastation.
“‘Sag Noir’ has brought me more joy and satisfaction than I could have possibly dreamed. Out of destruction and loss came a lesson in generosity, kindness, and community spirit,” he said. This set of images, printed by artist/photographer Jane Martin with a frontispiece foreword by Lenzer, is being presented in a clamshell box produced by the bookbinder Paul Vogel. Each image is a loose photograph measuring 17” x 22”, suitable for separate framing. The entire boxed set is priced to start with initial sales at $7000, increasing to $7500 as the edition of 20 sells out, and proceeds after production costs will be entirely donated to the Sag Harbor Cinema rebuilding effort. A reception will be held on Friday, June 14, from 6 to 8 PM.
