Lloyd Ziff didn’t consider himself a professional photographer until 1999, at which point he said he “decided take his photographs out from under the bed.”
Although the Orient Point resident, 74, had years ago taken an array of now-famous pictures of singer Patti Smith and photographers Robert Mapplethorpe and Annie Leibovitz, he didn’t feel ready to share more of his work with the world until last year, when he published two books: “New York: Photographs: 1967-2014” and “Los Angeles: Photographs: 1967-2014.” He’ll discuss both during an illustrated lecture at Floyd Memorial Library in Greenport at 3 p.m. Sunday, March 5.(more…)
