Authors @ NCL: Ira Resnick presents The Seventies

June 13, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Location: Lamb Room

The seventies in America were a time of social and cultural ferment, and Ira Resnick was there with his camera to capture it all. Now he is opening his archives to reveal hundreds of rare celebrity photos―many never seen since their original publication in magazines like Rolling Stone, People, and Us.

Unseen images of the personalities who defined a decade include musicians like the Rolling Stones, Stevie Nicks, and James Taylor; actors and directors like Sissy Spacek, Warren Beatty, and Martin Scorsese; comedians like Steve Martin, Gilda Radner, and Bill Murray; athletes like Muhammad Ali, Billie Jean King, and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar; politicians like Jimmy Carter, Jerry Brown, and Bella Abzug.

Resnick’s dynamic shots are accompanied by personal anecdotes about his legendary subjects.


Ira M. Resnick studied film at New York University before beginning a decade-long career as a professional photographer. A leading collector of movie posters, Resnick is founder of the Motion Picture Arts Gallery and author of Starstruck: Vintage Movie Posters from Classic Hollywood (Abbeville). He is a trustee and former chairman of the board of the Film Society of Lincoln Center.

In partnership with Elm Street Books.
