In our first gathering at Ryan Ranch, Casanave will address the arc of her career as a woman portrait photographer in the Central Coast masculine landscape milieu, and will also explain the evocative optics and aesthetics of pinhole photography used in some of her work. Our second meeting will be a personal tour of the exhibition provided by the artist.
