June 2017 event: Museum of Photographic Arts (MOPA)

June 2017 event: Museum of Photographic Arts (MOPA)

On June 9th, a small group of us gathered at the Museum of Photographic Arts (MOPA) in Balboa Park for a facilitated tour of the current exhibition, Sebastião Salgado: Genesis, and a visit to The Edmund L. and Nancy K. Dubois Library.

The Sebastião Salgado: Genesis exhibition is a remarkable collection of black and white photographs depicting “the landscapes, seascapes, animals and peoples that have so far escaped the long reach of today’s world.”  The tour included guided conversations and observations of the images, their purpose and meaning.

After the exhibition, we were treated to a tour of The Edmund L. and Nancy K. Dubois Library, one of the largest collections of items related to photography.  The unique collection is widely used by students and researchers alike.
