SOCO Shop welcomes Ken Van Sickle for a book signing of Photography 1954-2009, the artist’s newly released monograph by Damiani. Photography 1954-2009 is a collection of 140 of Ken Van Sickle’s favorite black and white photographs taken in various places around the world.

Van Sickle’s evanescent photographs fulfill the time-traveling brief of all great photography, granting onlookers intimate, keyhole access to Paris in the fifties, the New York Beat scene, Andy Warhol's Factory.

Echoing the light of Irving Penn pictures and the compositions of images by Henri Cartier-Bresson, Van Sickle's photographs are given their due in his first ever monograph. This is a limited run with 700 copies available.
