Fotografiska New York will be hosting the NYC screening of Utopia Films ‘Martha: A Picture Story’, a portrait of trailblazing photographer Martha Cooper.

Cooper is an American photojournalist who became the first female staff photographer for the New York Post during the 1970s, and later became best known for documenting New York City communities and the graffiti scene of the 1970s and 1980s. Director Selina Miles’ affectionate tribute to Cooper journeys viewers from her beginnings, snapping shots on a solo motorcycle trip through east Asia in 1963 at the age of 20, to today, an influential icon to the global movement of street art.

The screening and panel discussion will take place on Saturday, March 13 and Sunday, Marth 14.

A selection of books by the artist will be available for purchase at The Shop both in-store and online.
