MOPA Presents Chris McCaw - Sunburn Lecture

Join us on the evening of May 3rd for a special lecture by San Francisco based photographer Chris McCaw, who will be speaking about his innovative Sunburn project. In this body of work, begun in 2003, McCaw creates images by allowing the sun to burn its path onto a paper negative during a long exposure, using the camera as a tool for both creation and destruction.

The lecture will be followed by a signing of McCaw's most recent book, Sunburn.
