About the Exhibition

Through the work of the Los Gatos - Saratoga Camera Club, the California History Center will host "Lens on Silicon Valley: A Photographic Exhibition" and explore this challenge: Members of the Camera Club have been asked to answer the question, "What does Silicon Valley mean to you?" and will have free rein to capture what they feel is the meaning of "Silicon Valley."

Approximately 48 photographic works will be selected and displayed. We are excited to see what they come up with and look forward to how their work might inspire our own students to come up with future documentation projects.

For more than 50 years, the Los Gatos - Saratoga Camera Club has provided opportunities for local photographers to share their work, participate in workshops, and organize exhibits for the general public. For more information about the club, visit lgscc.photoclubservices.com.
