March 5, 2021
The Monacelli Press
Date: Saturday, March 20
Time: 1:00 pm PST
Location: Online via Zoom
Join SAH/SCC for a talk showcasing the architectural photography of Wayne Thom and celebrating the new book Wayne Thom: Photographing the Late Modern by SAH/SCC Member Emily Bills. Bills is an educator, curator, and author with research interests in urban history and social and environmental justice. She is Participating Adjunct Professor and Coordinator of the Urban Studies Program at Woodbury University.
Raised in Hong Kong, Thom moved to California in the mid-1960s. The book includes photographs of work by architects such as William L. Pereira, FAIA, Gio Ponti, FAIA, John Portman, FAIA, and I.M. Pei, FAIA. For those SAH/SCC members who attended “Bakersfield Built: 1960s,” Thom’s photographs of modern architecture in Bakersfield will be a familiar reprise.
