From June 18 through September 30, 2017, the mission museum will feature an exhibit of photographs by award-winning photographic artist Craig Alan Huber.
The luminous black and white photos are drawn from Huber’s 2015 book, The Spirit Within Saint Junípero. Through his photographs, Huber has attempted to chronicle Junípero Serra’s spiritual journey. The photos are taken on 5×7 inch plates, using a platinum and silver process that produces rich contrasts.
The artist visited Mission San Juan Bautista in 2013 to take photographs in the mission church. Some of these photos are included in his book, and in the exhibit at the mission. Other photos were taken in locations that played an important role in Serra’s life, including Mallorca, Spain, Sierra Gorda, Mexico, and California.
On July 1, 2017 (the Feast Day of Saint Junípero Serra), the mission will be hosting a reception for the artist from 4:00 to 6:00 PM. For details, contact the mission gift shop at 831-623-4528 / email@example.com
