Tomas van Houtryve: Lines and Lineage

Palo Alto Photography Forum presents Tomas van Houtryve: LINES AND LINEAGE. Come out to hear about our 2017 Fellow Tomas van Houtryve's project ‘Lines and Lineage’ — a new powerful body of work that explores the reality of the US and Mexico border before 1848, when the United States seized half of Mexico’s land and created the border that we know today. The conversation will be moderated by Sally Martin Katz, Curatorial Assistant of Photography at SFMOMA.
