    Exploring the beautiful essence of California’s 1,100 mile long coastline through photography and prose, this exhibition features black and white images from LA-based photographer Jasmine Swope’s quest to capture the essence of California’s marine parks. Accompanying the images, author Dwight Holing’s prose contributes narrative interpretations of these otherworldly landscapes.

    California made history with the creation of the nation’s first statewide system of ocean parks − a network of 124 Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) stretching from Oregon to the Mexico border. Like national parks on land, MPAs are magnificent in beauty and wildness while providing protection for wildlife, solutions to climate change, and recreational resources for all. Our Ocean’s Edge is a photographic documentary project that celebrates these fragile seascapes, from Southern to Northern California, while increasing awareness about their natural benefits and promoting ecological conservation.

    Opening Reception for “Our Oceans Edge” is Sunday October 8th 5:30 to 7:30
