William S. Burroughs and will talk about this and show her images during her lecture.
As part of the photo festival, she is exhibiting her project “Re-Visions” that is conceptual images and constructions
with a hint of a young girls rather naughty mind and some pre-post-feminism.
It is better and edgier than Cindy Sherman and more clever and raw than Duane Michals.

– Victor Bockris
Victor Bockris is first and formost a writer who was tld by Andy Warhol that he
should also be a photograpeher. His images of Warhol and Ali are wonderful
and strange. Clash of the titans and totally Ying & Yang.
Victor will talk about his work as a writer and biographer of some of the
most important pop icons in modern time. He will also talk about that very
special day when Warhol met Ali for the first and last time.
You will also be able to buy signed copies of his books and original prints.
