Tomas van Houtryve: Lines and Lineage
Moderated by Sally Katz

At Mitchell Park Community Center

Please join us in Palo Alto for a conversation with award-winning photographer Tomas Van Houtryve and moderator Sally Katz. Tomas Van Houtryve’s new powerful body of work Lines and Lineage explores the reality of the US and Mexico border before 1848, when the United States seized half of Mexico’s land and created the border that we know today.  His presentation will explore how photography has shaped our understanding of early California history.

This event is presented by the Palo Alto Photography Forum in collaboration with SF Camerawork and CatchLight. Images from Lines and Lineage will be on view at SF Camerawork as part of Focal Points, CatchLight’s inaugural exhibition, which opens May 3, 2018.
