This Friday opens the latest exhibit of my photos in the “25 Stories from the Central Valley” collection. They are already online here, but there’s something extra-special about seeing them “in the flesh” too. I dropped them off on Sunday and had a good time deciding how to group them in the space they’ll be displayed.
The exhibit is hosted by the San Joaquin River Parkway and Conservation Trust at their scenic headquarters in Fresno. I’m excited about the show for two reasons. First, this is the first conservation group (as opposed to environmental justice group) that I’ve had contact with in the Central Valley, and I’m happy the photos can serve as a small bridge between these two facets of environmentalism. Second, we’ve already shown the photos on the campus where the project started, UC Davis, and this will be the first time they are shown in the region where they were actually taken.
I’ll be attending the exhibit’s reception this Friday (details here). Hope to see you there!
