The 2009 Baum Award for Emerging American Photographers
SF Camerawork, San Francisco
April 2 - May 23, 2009
Delicately manipulating imagery to create black and white Polaroid photographs that subtly explore ways in which our actions alter the natural landscape, McFarland’s photographs serve, he notes, as “witness to the landscape, showing its history, our trace in it, and admiring its beauty."

Sharon Tanenbaum, Executive Director of SF Camerawork, notes, “We are delighted to host The Baum Award and thrilled that San Francisco resident Sean McFarland was chosen from an impressive group of nominees from across the country as the 2009 award recipient."
