Chris McCaw, whose work was included in the recent Nasher Museum’s Light Sensitive show, discusses his work, including his project Sunburn, in which he builds his own cameras to create unique paper negatives by direct exposure to the sun in such places as the Arctic Circle. McCaw lives and works in San Francisco and has recently enjoyed enthusiastic interest from critics, museums, commercial galleries, and collectors. Seating is limited.
Presented jointly by the Nasher Museum Double Exposure Photography Collectors Group and Cassilhaus.
