Book talk. Photographer and author Barbara Mensch has lived alongside the Brooklyn Bridge for over 30 years. Combining her first-person perspective with striking photography, In the Shadow of Genius takes us on a journey of Mensch’s life by the bridge and her curious path to understand the brilliant minds and remarkable lives of those who built it: John, Washington, and Emily Roebling. From New York to Germany, as well as Pennsylvania and other sites of Roebling projects, Mensch fuses her contemporary photography and historical records, giving us a new perspective on Roebling’s masterwork. 39 Battery Place.
