Survey: Aerial Photographs of Ventura, California
Exhibition: April 13 – June 30, 2016
Reception: April 13, 5 – 7:30 pm

Showcasing the work of two photographers, a Brooks Institute alumnus and a current student whose works are separated by a time span of over 50 years. These photographs, freed from a terrestrial perspective, offer a unique glimpse of what remains and what has been transformed over time. Alumnus Walt Dibblee’s striking 4×5 photographs from the 1950s and 60s show a growing, costal city in the midst of development, while current student Kamilo Bustamante’s contemporary images show a breathtaking but much altered Ventura. Together these images allow a Survey into what we value and hold onto in the spaces we live.
