Extinction Party: A Photobook Case Study

Online Conversation with Jonathan Blaustein, Caleb Cain Marcus, and Jennifer Yoffy
Thursday, June 25, 2020, 7pm EST

Free and open to the public
Registration required

Have you ever wondered what goes into the creation of a photobook, from the initial project idea to the final publication and beyond? Join Aurora for a moderated conversation with the creative team behind Extinction Party, published by Yoffy Press and released this past March. This timely book offers an incisive look at our culture of mass consumption in a globalized world. Led by Aurora’s Mary Goodwin, the talk features photographer Jonathan Blaustein, designer Caleb Cain Marcus, and publisher Jennifer Yoffy for an evening of anecdotal stories, lessons, and experiences as Extinction Party went from idea to reality. Some discussion topics will include:

* When to take the leap from a personal project to a book
* How to approach publishers
* The creative collaboration between the photographer, designer, and publisher
* An honest assessment of funding a book project
* What happens after your book is published

Extinction Party is photographer and conceptual artist Jonathan Blaustein’s first book and brings together over a decade’s worth of research on consumption in America. His elegant images investigate the relationship between what we take from the earth and what we receive in return. Published at the advent of the global pandemic, Extinction Party makes clear that there is a price to pay, beyond the cash register, for the overconsumption of our planet’s resources. In his introduction to the book, Blaustein writes, “It’s the end of the world as we know it. We humans treat the planet like one big, rowdy, discount super-market: a Trader Joe’s filled with chickens, cows and pigs. And we’re hungry for all of it.”

The day before BlackRock’s Annual General Meeting for shareholders, join frontline leaders, elected officials and activists in discussion on solutions to BlackRock’s big climate and human rights problems.

Wednesday May 20 | 1:00 pm E/10:00 am P | People’s Assembly on BlackRock

Why a People’s Assembly? Amidst shelter in place orders due to the pandemic, companies are moving their Annual General Meetings (AGMs) for shareholders online.

AGM’s are the one time in the financial year when communities could speak to senior executives and hold them accountable for the impacts of their businesses.

This year community and Indigenous leaders can’t be there to speak directly to leadership and in many cases we’re seeing digital platforms used to silence or sideline questions.

That’s why we’re organizing this People’s Assembly on BlackRock. Help us ensure that these voices, questions, and demands are heard loud and clear by BlackRock.

Featuring:
Helena Gualinga, Indigenous environmental and human rights activist from the Kichwa Sarayaku community in Pastaza, Ecuador (Ecuadorian Amazon)

Wrays Perez, Indigenous Wampis leader from Peruvian Amazon

Eloy Terena, human rights lawyer from the indigenous Terena peoples of Ibague, Brazil.

Senator Sheldon Whitehouse, Rhode Island

Representative Jesús G. “Chuy” García, Illinois 4th District

Bill McKibben, writer and climate activist, co-founder 350 dot org

Nearly one million people successfully applied for Universal Credit in the final two weeks of March – 10 times the usual number. Thousands more were stuck waiting in an online queue.

The Chancellor has announced a package of measures to support people struggling with the economic fallout of coronavirus. But are they enough? Have 10 years of cuts broken our social security system beyond repair? What should we as progressives be fighting for now, and how do we win our demands?
