This exhibition catalog expands on our gallery guide with original essays by Joshua Chuang, chief curator at the Center for Creative Photography and Sandra S. Phillips, senior curator of photography at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. In addition to these essays, the catalog features an expansive conversation between photographers Stephen Shore and Paul Graham, and Christopher McCall, director of Pier 24 Photography.

A Sense of Place explores how photographs shape the perception of our environments. Together, the exhibited works shift in scale from room size installations to small, quiet photographs, transporting the viewer through a variety of locations, memories, and emotive experiences. With over 50 photographers and 400 works represented in A Sense of Place, the exhibition takes a close look at photographers such as Robert Adams, Doug Aitken, Uta Barth, Edward Burtynsky, Eric William Carroll, John Chiara, Jan De Cock, Moyra Davey, Thomas Demand, Jose Manuel Fors, Lee Friedlander, Paul Graham, Andreas Gursky, Todd Hido, Rinko Kawauchi, Veronika Kellndorfer, Erik Kessels, Lucia Koch, Richard Learoyd, Richard Misrach, Asako Narahasi, Stephen Shore, Cinthya Soto, Wolfgang Tillmans, and Jeff Wall, as well as selections from the Sack Photographic Trust.

This publication is available for purchase online and at Pier 24 Photography.
