Sixty Plus Lecture: Suburban Dreams Revisited

When: January 14, 2019 - 1:00pm

Beth Yarnelle Edwards, Photographer

In 1997 San Francisco-based Beth Yarnelle Edwards began photographing in the suburbs of Silicon Valley where she lived for many years. These suburbs are a physical embodiment of the American Dream as a place where natural beauty intersects with the tech industry, with an increasingly diverse yet predominately affluent population. Exhibitions led to photographs from France, Spain, Germany, Holland and Iceland in addition. Though the events are staged, they are based on information obtained from interviews from the subjects and always with their knowledge and consent.

If you are attending for the first time, an RSVP is appreciated. Email to to RSVP and get more information.
