Photojournalist and author of History of a Disappearance: The Story of a Forgotten Polish Town, is just back in Poland after a lightning two-week tour of the United States. With the support of the Polish Cultural Institute of New York and accompanied by the book's translator, Sean Bye, Springer zipped to Chicago, where he attended the UIC Hejna Conference and an event with Words without Borders' Susan Harris, then to San Francisco, where the Center for the Art of Translation hosted him at the Booksmith, and to the Twin Cities, where the Polish American Cultural Institute of America and Common Good Books held events. Lastly, he made his way to New York City, for events at PEN World Voices, Lit Crawl NYC, and Greenpoint Public Library.
Oh, and he managed to take some photos between all those events! We at Restless are grateful to have met this multitalented man and, after reading his incisive reportage about a Polish town, to see our own urban landscapes through his finely tuned eyes. Check out the remarkable shots he took on tour below.
