August 22: Paz de la Huerta Book Signing at ARCANA, Los Angeles


Please join Arcana: Books on the Arts tonight, August 22nd from 6-7:30 PM, for a publication party and book signing with actress Paz De La Huerta, in celebration of the new book, The Birds Didnít Die over the Winter: Photographs by Alexandra Carr.

Photographer Alexandra Carr met Paz de la Huerta - the actress and Boardwalk Empire star - in New York in 2007, shortly before Paz became the celebrity she is today, and they soon agreed to collaborate on a photo project. The two began shooting in the fall of 2008, often using Pazís small West Village apartment as a backdrop - which was mercifully well heated throughout that especially cold New York winter. Published by Damiani Editore, and with an introduction by Francesco Clemente, The Birds Didnít Die over the Winter is a gorgeous, linen-bound volume that explores themes of love, loneliness and the difficult transition from youth into relative maturity. As Carr recalls, ďit was made during a turbulent time in Pazís life and her life is a subtext in an otherwise imagined reality. We would discuss a character and direction beforehand and then Paz would play out these roles partly of made up characters and of favorite scenes from films each shoot.Ē Paz is a charismatic subject throughout the book, at once fearless, sexual and vividly present, moving fluidly between roleplay and apparent candor. Carr explains the title: ď[Paz] called one morning in the spring saying she had an idea for what we should call the book. She said she woke up and heard birds outside her window. She couldnít believe they had survived such an abominable winter. It was a perfect metaphor for the book.Ē

If you cannot attend but would like to purchase a signed copy of  The Birds Didnít Die over the Winter, please phone 310-458-1499. August 22:  Paz de la Huerta Book Signing at ARCANA, Los Angeles
