Stephen Johnson Photography. Pacifica Center for the Arts

Join us for a lecture describing the inspiration and creation of Stephen Johnson’s 50 Years of Space Photography exhibition. The talk will walk through the evolution of photography in space, both remote and in human hands. 

The reach of our cameras into the cosmos has reshaped our view of the solar system, galaxy and beyond. The imagination and technology of our new age astronomer/engineer explorers is documented with the enthusiasm of a boy fascinated with the space program who became a man who has spent his career pushing the limits of photography and technology.

It is an amazing story revealing a universe of mind blowing wonder.

Steve will discuss his exhibition of new prints from over 50 years of Space Photography which joined the current Life Form Exhibition for a mind-blowing journey from the living world close-up to the depths of space. The Space Exhibit evolved out of Steve’s longterm interest in the space program and views offered of the heavens and by spacecraft far away. The concentration on the exotic form of the living world of the Life Form work inspired this expressive look at the wonders of the very large and distant in this print exploration of photographs Steve had been gathering for years.

Original Stephen Johnson Prints and Public Domain image prints from the Space Photography exhibit will be for sale.
