Foothill College and the Photography Department present The Conversation: F8Dont Wait, an exhibition by a long-standing Bay Area photography group, which posts on a blog called: F8DontWait. The blog started informally in the spring of 2013, when one of the members, Dorothy Gantenbein, set up the shared blogging capability for her group colleagues. Each day, in a prescribed order, one of the nine artists posts an image in response to the previous day’s post. The blog thread now includes more than 1240 images and is still ongoing.The Conversation Exhibit brings this F8 artistic collaboration to the physical world. It explores the three+ year conversation in the language of imagery: content, form, color, theme, mood and more. It works much like a visual version of the children’s game of “Telephone” in which one child whispers a message to the next, and so on down the line of participants, until the last player announces the message—always totally transformed from the original one. Day by day, photograph by photograph, the timbre of the blog changes—sometimes subtly, other times dramatically—as each member responds with an individual eye and sensitivity.
Exhibiting Artists include: William Bishop, Dorothy Gantenbein, David Hibbard, Susan Honda Eady, Robert A. Kato, Patricia McClung, Katie Parquet, Maude Pervere and Rachel Phillips.

Raúl Cañibano: Storyteller
January 21 – March 11, 2015
The KCI Gallery was pleased to present Raúl Cañibano: Storyteller, the first solo exhibition in the Western United States by internationally acclaimed Cuban photographer Raúl Cañibano. Based in Havana, Cañibano is a storyteller at heart, and uses the camera to narrate the story of his country, its people and their struggles in the post-revolution era. Through his series, Cañibano’s images tell the tales of everyday Cubans in the city (Chronicles of the City) and in the countryside (Guajira’s Land), and confront the loneliness and abandonment of ageing in Cuba (Sunset).
From the hectic streets of Old Havana to the tranquil shores of Myanmar’s Inle Lake; from mystic Roman ruins in Provence to the bustling new neighborhoods of Shanghai; from Boston Harbor to San Francisco Bay, Harlan Crowder captures photographs that give a unique and personal perspective to places, cultures, and people around the world. Wanderlust showcases his travel photographs made over the last decade in North and South America, Asia, Africa, and Europe.

FROM BURMA TO MYANMAR: Portrait of a country in transition
May 15th through June 21, 2014
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.

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.
