New Community Storytelling Event with Photographer Bear Guerra
“There are two people in every picture,” said photographer Ansel Adams. “The photographer and the viewer.” I love this statement. A single photograph can reveal new worlds. It can tell a rich, complex, and often compelling story, providing an artifact for the world. A photograph can also provide a unique view of the photographer’s world as well as offer a window to explore our own points of view.

Join us in our next community storytelling event, Thursday, May 7th at 11am/PST, to discuss the art of photography with photographer Roberto Bear Guerra. Bear’s work documents globalization, development, and social justice issues. You can find his photo essays—“La Carretera: Life and Change Along Peru’s Interoceanic Highway” and “A Possible River”—in our library. His captivating photographs explore the relationship between human and natural landscapes as well as the destructive impacts on people and places caused by the impacts of modernization. Bear is currently the photo editor for High Country News Magazine.

During the webinar, we’ll view Bear’s photography and he will share the inspiration and intention behind his work. We’ll also explore curriculum connections to art, English language arts, social studies, and science. For those of you whose students are entering our student photography contest, Document Your Place on the Planet, Bear will share a few tips on how to take a good photograph. 

We encourage students, educators, families, and photography lovers to join us for this free event. Bring your questions to the conversation! If you can’t join us, please do register and we’ll send you the recording. Closed captioning and sign language interpreters will be available.

I hope you can join us.

All the best,
