Exhibition Website: www.incredibletravelphotos.com/krause-innovation-center-2014

 

Huangshan and Zhangjiajie, China: Photographs of Land and Culture is an exhibit featuring a cross-section of documentary and fine art photography of the land and people of Mainland China. This photo exhibit will be on view June 23 to September 26, 2014 at the Krause Center for Innovation (KCI), Foothill College, Los Altos Hills, California. A public reception will be held at the KCI Gallery on Monday, June 23, from 6-9 PM. All are welcome.

Huangshan and Zhangjiajie, China explores the view of 16 photographers who spent two weeks in rural China on two photography trips led by Kate Jordahl, Professor of Photography at Foothill College, Geir Jordahl, Director at PhotoCentral, Hayward, CA and Oliver Klink, professional photographer at IncredibleTravelPhotos.

The two regions photographed were chosen for their unique landscape and their preservation of ancient culture and tradition. Even though China is going through rapid changes and building mega cities, there are still pockets of undiscovered beauty seldom visited by Westerners. Both regions feature UNESCO World Heritage sites, places recognized for their international historical and cultural importance.

Participants in this exhibition, which include both Foothill College photography students and local photographers, are Marti Cagwin, George Cagwin, Susan Carnahan, Sanford Carnahan, Mary desJardins, Francine Freeman, Kate Jordahl, Geir Jordahl, Wendy Hannum, Jacque Kae, Oliver Klink, Larry Miyamura, Susan Quinn, Jim Smith, Tim Wilson, and Rachel Wooster.

 

FROM BURMA TO MYANMAR: Portrait of a country in transition

May 15th through June 21, 2014

Postcard_Front

The photography exhibit, FROM BURMA TO MYANMAR: Portrait of a country in transition, captures a country exiting a troubled past and entering a new era of reform and openness. A nominally civilian government was installed in March 2011, ending fifty years of military dictatorship and opening a doorway to increased foreign relationships, investment and tourism. Burma today offers contrasting views of traditional ways and modernization. Seventeen Silicon Valley photographers, many of whom are associated with Foothill College, will share their experiences with 30 photographs at the Krause Center for Innovation (KCI) Gallery, Foothill College.

Photographers
Katherine Bazak, Cathy Cakebread, Barbara Buchholz Collins, Michael Collins, Harlan Crowder, Lorraine Crowder, Evelyn D’Alessandro, Lisa D’Alessandro, Ann Eddington, Karen Hensman, Ron Herman, Bob Mazawa, Melinda Miller, Susan Neville, Sandy O’Gorman, Don Wheatley and Kate Winn-Rogers.

The Cuban Evolution

January 24 – February 28, 2014

Cuban-Evolution

The photography exhibit, The Cuban Evolution, captures the Cuban people’s trepidation and excitement over economic reforms that are changing Cuba’s direction from a Soviet-style economic system to one that more closely resembles that of China or Vietnam.  Fifty-five years after the Cuban Revolution, this group of Silicon Valley photographers captured images of Cuban life at a historic turning point. Thirty photographs by thirteen photographers will be on display at the Krause Center for Innovation (KCI) Gallery, Foothill College.

During a two-week professional research trip to Cuba led by Foothill Photography Professor, Ron Herman, these photographers, many of whom are associated with Foothill College, captured images of Cuban life on the cusp of change. Some were visiting Cuba for the first time, while others were all drawn back with Herman to witness firsthand the visible changes that haven taken shape since their first trip.

Exhibitors:  Carla Bohnett, Loren Bohnett, Sheila Botein, Allen Gary, Julia Gary, Ron Herman, Bob Hills, Kathy McGovern, Melinda Miller, Aphra Pia, Bill Scull, Bob Thomsen and Don Wheatley.

In culturally diverse areas like California, this exhibit is not a luxury, it is a necessity.”

Exhibit hours are Mondays through Fridays from 7:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.; and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Parking Lots 3 and 5 provide access to the KCI.
