Gallery
January 21, 2015 - March 11, 2015  
Raul Canibano: Storyteller Photography Exhibit
First solo exhibition in the Western United States by the internationally acclaimed Cuban photographer

Krause Center for Innovation (KCI) Gallery
Admission is free; parking is $3.

Foothill College presents Raúl Cañibano: Storyteller, the first solo exhibition in the Western United States by the internationally acclaimed Cuban photographer, Jan. 21–March 11 in the KCI Gallery at Foothill College. Admission is free; parking is $3.

Based in Havana, Cañibano uses the camera to narrate the story of his country, its people and their struggles in the post-revolution era. Through his series, Cañibano’s images tell the story of everyday Cubans in the city (Chronicles of the City) and in the countryside (Guajira’s Land), and confront the loneliness and abandonment of aging in Cuba (Sunset). 

Foothill Photography Instructor and exhibit curator Ron Herman will discuss Cañibano's photographs during a lunchtime gallery talk Wednesday, March 4, from noon to 1 p.m. at the KCI Gallery.

Raúl Cañibano (b. 1961, Havana) was trained as a welding technician and was working in civic aviation when his interest in photography first emerged. It was while walking around Old Havana in 1991, that he saw an exhibit by Cuban photographer Alfredo Sarabia, known for working in the style of magical realism. “When I saw Sarabia’s images, I was floored,” said Cañibano. “His photos had such an impact on me that within a few days, I gave my notice to my boss and traded the blowtorch for a camera lens. I became determined to learn to be a photographer instead.”

Many of Cañibano’s early documentary photographs were ruined because he was forced to use expired film and chemicals, as they were the only ones available due to a lack of commercial exchange following the collapse of the Soviet Union and the socialist bloc in the beginning of the 1990s. Since photography schools did not exist in Cuba at the time, he taught himself by reading books on the topic and studying the basic rules of composition. He found this method of learning boring, so instead he decided to train his eye by looking at great images by the masters of photography and painting, and this helped him to compose his images.

“His images evoke the classic compositions of European and American photographers from the 1930s, like Walker Evans who also photographed in Havana,” said Ron Herman, photography instructor at Foothill College and curator of the exhibition. "Cañibano’s use of interesting framing devices and layering of subjects throughout the picture plane are reminiscent of Josef Koudelka and Sebastião Salgado. Cañibano has the intuition to know when to click the camera at the exact moment when the image elements are perfectly positioned within the frame. It’s as if he adapted Henri Cartier-Bresson’s 'The Decisive Moment' to fit the intoxicating chaos of Cuba, where a single small space is often utilized for multiple distinctly different purposes. He captures the apex of multiple stories unfolding simultaneously within the same scene, thereby defining 'The Decisive Cuban Moment.' He has observed and learned from the masters, but Cañibano developed a uniquely personal style, one that sets him apart and makes his images easily distinguishable from those of his contemporaries," Herman said.

In an effort to revisit the experiences of his childhood, Cañibano started the series Guajira’s Land in 1999. He returned for months at a time to the rural part of the island where he grew up, living day to day with the farmers and experiencing the same joys and difficulties that they did. His history in the community and familiarity with his subjects rendered his camera invisible which enabled him to capture unguarded moments in the daily lives of these rural farmers. The result is a compassionate point of view. “I believe I am a visual narrator,” says Cañibano, “I am narrating my place and my time in a very personal way. In 1999, he won the Gran Prix in the Cuban National Photography Exhibit for his Guajira’s Land series. “This project has an anthropological element,” he says, “because my intent is to document a way of life and customs that may be lost with the passage of time and change that society is experiencing as it develops.” In 2000, he was one of eleven photographers selected for the exhibition, 50 Years of Cuban Photography, at the Royal National Theatre in London, which showcased the work of the most significant Cuban photographers after the triumph of the revolution. Cañibano resides and works in Havana.

Lunchtime Gallery Talk—Wednesday, March 4, noon to 1 p.m. Curator Ron Herman will discuss the photographs in the exhibition in the gallery. Admission is free; parking is $3.
KCI Gallery—Lower Level, Foothill College, 12345 El Monte Road, Los Altos Hills, CA 94022 Gallery Hours: M–F, 8:30 a.m.–6:30 p.m.; Sat, 9 a.m.– 4:30 p.m. Closed Sundays and for holidays on Jan 19 and Feb 13 and 16.

Free Astronomy Guest Lecture: Sentinel Mission—Finding the Asteroid Headed for Earth
Part of the Silicon Valley Astronomy Lecture Series

Smithwick Theatre (Room 1001)
Admission is free; purchase required parking permit for $3 from dispensers in any student lot.

As part of the 15th annual Silicon Valley Astronomy Lecture Series, former NASA Astronaut Edward Tsang "Ed" Lu, Ph.D., and CEO of the Sentinel Mission, will discuss The Sentinel Mission: Finding the Asteroid Headed for Earth, an illustrated, non-technical lecture Wednesday, March 4, at 7 p.m. in the Smithwick Theatre at Foothill College in Los Altos Hills. Admission is free and the public is invited. Seating is first come, first served. Arrive early to locate parking.

Asteroids, which hit our planet at least twice each year, are the only natural disaster for which we have a technological solution. We are all living with the threat of a three-minute experience that could transform our lives and our planet forever. On Feb. 15, 2013, for example, an asteroid impact on Chelyabinsk, Russia, sent more than 1,700 people to seek medical attention, damaged more than over 7,200 buildings and cost the city more than $33 million dollars (1 billion rubles) in property damage.

Scientists have found 10,000 Near-Earth Objects, yet there are an estimated one million in our inner solar system, and the vast majority of the threatening ones are still undiscovered.  In this non-technical talk, Dr. Lu will describe the threat, and discuss the Sentinel Mission, an orbiting telescope to detect and track asteroids that cross Earth’s orbit.

Dr. Lu is the CEO and co-founder of the Sentinel Mission and was co-founder of the non-profit B612 Foundation that is raising funds for it.   A physicist with a doctorate from Stanford, Lu was selected for the NASA astronaut corps in 1994. He flew two Space Shuttle missions, and spent 206 days in space aboard the International Space Station in 2003.  He is the recipient of NASA’s highest honor, the Distinguished Service Medal, and worked for a time on Google’s Advanced Project Team.

The free lecture series is sponsored by the Foothill College Astronomy ProgramNASA Ames Research CenterSETI Institute Astronomical Society of the Pacific. Past lectures from the series are available online at www.astrosociety.org/education/podcast/index.html. A number of past Silicon Valley Astronomy Lectures are now available free on YouTube on the series' own channel at www.youtube.com/user/SVAstronomyLectures/.

In addition to fieldwork, you’ll study Irish culture by visiting major attractions and working with a living history museum to conduct experiments in medieval technology. You’ll also earn 12 units and complete an exciting program that includes cultural excursions, lectures and service learning projects.

Throughout the experience, you’ll discover how the application of applied anthropology pertains to the modern world. No prior experience in anthropology is necessary.

When you complete your online application, you'll receive a welcome letter sent to your e-mail, usually within 24 hours, that includes your Foothill College Student ID number, also known as your CWID. This will be your personal identifier for your entire Foothill College experience, and you'll use it for numerous transactions with the college, including your placement tests, counseling appointments and registration. Keep your CWID secret, safe and secure. Treat your CWID as you do your credit card. Remember, your CWID opens records to your personal information. If for any reason you do not receive an e-mail with your CWID, call the Foothill College Admissions & Records Office at (650) 949-7325.

2. Get ready for your assessment tests. We highly recommend that you take a practice math placement test and review English resources to be better prepared. Access the assessment and placement website at www.foothill.edu/placement/index.php.

4. Register for the SOAR workshop. You need only attend one workshop. Review the SOAR Web page, choose the time and date that work best for you, and register for your workshop. After you complete the online registration form for your SOAR workshop, you will receive an e-mail confirmation detailing where to park on campus, a workshop schedule, the room number for orientation and a campus map.

Plan Now, Get Priority Later
State laws now give priority registration to students who complete an orientation and assessment, work with a counselor to develop an education plan, succeed in their classes and make progress toward completing their academic goals.

“To help new students receive priority registration, Foothill College is presenting one-stop SOAR enrollment workshops so that you can complete required assessment, orientation and education plan development well before Fall Quarter 2015 gets under way,” says Foothill College Vice President of Student Services Denise Swett, Ed.D. “The thoughtful planning you do now will ensure that your Foothill experience is streamlined and successful.”

In order to register for subsequent quarters, state laws require all California community college students to file an individual education plan, maintain academic good standing and demonstrate progress toward completion of their academic goals.

With music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and based upon the book by James Lapine, Foothill College Vocal Instructor Milissa Carey teams up with music director Dolores Duran-Cefalu for the Foothill production of Sunday in the Park with George.

One of the most acclaimed musicals of our time, this moving study of the enigmatic painter Georges Seurat won a Pulitzer Prize for its deeply insightful and highly personal examination of life through art and the artist.

In the days leading up to the completion of his most famous painting, A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatté, Georges Seurat is struggling to make meaningful art and maintaining a relationship with his lover, Dot. Amid the scorn of the artistic community, Seurat's artistic ability thrives while his love diminishes. A century later, Seurat's descendant—named George and also an artist—finds himself burnt out and in search of what artistic path to follow, but he finds the answer to his future in the past.

An ensemble of strong singing actors performs this challenging and heartbreaking work about our need to connect to the past, present and future. The ground-breaking work by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine, the authors of Into the Woods and Passion, contain some of their most beautiful and stirring work.

Parking Lots 1 and 8 provide the best access to the theatre. Purchase permit for $3 at dispensers in any student lot. Dispensers accept one-dollar bills and quarters.
