Speaking publicly about the magazine for the first time together, Graydon Carter (editor-in-chief since the early 1990s) and Jonathan Becker (the influential photographer who contributed some of his best work to VF) dish the dirt on what has gone on behind the pages of this popular publication in the last three decades. The event celebrates new photography book Jonathan Becker: 30 Years at Vanity Fair, which features the shutterbug’s signature society shots of the rich and famous, including modern-dance mogul Martha Graham and former First Lady Jackie Kennedy. The pair will indulge the audience in a Q&A and booksigning, so don’t be afraid to ask everything you’ve ever wanted to know about the larger-than-life personalities captured in the tome.
