Experience & Record
Experience & Record: Photography with Sean McFarland
Take a pinhole photography hike in the Headlands using handmade, analog cameras alongside photographer Sean McFarland (AIR ’11). After imaging the dynamic layers of Headlands’ landscape on the trail, learn to process the images in the darkroom and digitally archive them. You’ll leave with a portfolio of your printed photographs, and will receive a small edition zine of images from all participants, made by McFarland, shortly after the session.
