The PhotoAlliance lecture series brings to the Bay Area a rich range of talent and ideas to further the communities dialogue with contemporary photography.

Each month we present nationally and internationally known artists as featured speakers.  Our goal is also to support the diverse range of regional photographers, and when possible, our events begin with an introductory presentation by an emerging artist.

You will never know what you will see or hear at a PhotoAlliance lecture, but you are likely not to forget each you attend. 

Everyone welcome.
