Please join us for this rare visit to the Monterey Bay Area by Rebecca Senf, Chief Curator of the prestigious Center for Creative Photography and Curator of Photography at the Phoenix Art Museum. Dr. Senf will share insights into her exciting curatorial projects, her connection with the West Coast landscape tradition and the direction of contemporary photography.

Dr. Senf earned her B.A. in Art History from the University of Arizona; her M.A. and Ph.D. were awarded by Boston University. In Boston she worked on the Museum of Fine Arts’ major exhibition Ansel Adams from The Lane Collection, for which she co-authored the catalogue. Her books include Reconstructing the View: The Grand Canyon Photographs of Mark Klett and Byron Wolfe, and To Be Thirteen, showcasing the work of Betsy Schneider. Her curatorial interests range from Modernist American to contemporary photography, and she has curated numerous, wide-ranging exhibitions in both physical space and online.

We hope you will join us in welcoming Rebecca Senf to the Center for Photographic Art!
