GME associates David Deitch and Alex Westhelle preparing for an illustrated talk on the life and career of photographer Raimondo Borea at PhotoShelter in Union Square, New York City on April 2, 2015. Presented under the auspices of ASPP, this unique event was very well attended.
GME’s specialty is working with deceased photographers’ estates, and President Jon Gartenberg also led a lively discussion about his company’s work in excavating, identifying, cataloguing, and repurposing the legacy of overlooked, but historically important, photographers.
The original announcement about this presentation is noted below:
Archivists and dealers Jon Gartenberg and David Deitch of Gartenberg Media Enterprises discuss the life and work of Raimondo Borea, entertainment and NYC street photographer, active from the 1950’s through the early ’80s.
Mr. Borea’s work included celebrity portraits and on-set photography for NBC. He was also an active member and past president of ASPP. Images from the Borea collection: both original prints and projections will be on view. His daughter, Carla Borea,will share her memories and her wishes for the preservation of his legacy.
Mr. Gartenberg and Mr. Deitch will also discuss the issues and concerns in the handling of photographic legacies, and the preservation and marketing of an estate collection.
