Event description

Presented by the CCA Photography Program as part of the Larry Sultan Visiting Artist Program, in partnership with Pier 24, McEvoy Foundation for the Arts, and Headlands Center for the Arts.

Californian photographer and 2019 Larry Sultan Photography Award winner Jonathan Calm discusses his work at this lecture. While in residence at Headlands, Calm will be expanding his portfolio of Green Book sites and locations, with a particular focus on the American West. Amidst increased public awareness of the Green Book over the past year--due in part to the film The Green Book and the controversy over its 2019 Academy Award for Best Picture of the Year--Calm’s work presents a more ambiguous counterpoint to the popular narrative of California as a modern-day promised land.
