The Leica Talks with Maggie Steber: The Secret Life of Lily Palmer Essay

Thursday, May 9th 2:00pm – 3:00pm

Explore the depth and mystery that lies beyond the psyche of Maggie Steber through her provocative series “The Secret Garden of Lily LaPalma”. Steber will discuss her work in-depth, reflecting countless influences and experiences, dating back to her childhood.

“The Secret Garden of Lily LaPalma is a series of photographs made in the shadows of a dark side of me that I have, as of late, begun to re-explore. Without meaning to make them so, these photographs reveal my fears and private memories, all the things that are wrapped up, not always so neatly, in someone’s life.” – Maggie Steber

Biographies

Radcliffe Roye is a Brooklyn-based documentary photographer specializing in editorial and environmental portraits and photo-journalism. A photographer inspired by the raw and gritty lives of grass-roots people, especially those of his homeland of Jamaica, Radcliffe strives to tell the stories of their victories and ills by bringing their voices to matte fibre paper. Recently, Radcliffe began experimenting with interpretative photography, preferring to allow the abstract content within the frame to dictate the voice and purpose of the image. His Elements series focuses on the bold, austere, graphic and emotionally raw imagery, that is trapped behind a diffused lens. With painterly sensibilities, Radcliffe uses this diffused methodology to subtly awake the subconscious and expose the isolated figure or vision painted within a rhetorical frame.

Photographer Maggie Steber has worked in 64 countries focusing on humanitarian, cultural, and social stories. Her honors include the Leica Medal of Excellence, World Press Photo Foundation, the Overseas Press Club, Pictures of the Year, the Medal of Honor for Distinguished Service to Journalism from the University of Missouri, the Alicia Patterson and Ernst Haas Grants, and a Knight Foundation grant for the New American Newspaper project. Clients include National Geographic Magazine, The New York Times Magazine, Smithsonian Magazine, AARP, The Guardian, and Geo Magazine among others.
