Meet Photographer Mark Robert Halper at First Thursday Book Signing

Come meet photographer Mark Robert Halper of the critically acclaimed coffee table book Between Seer and Seen: Celebrating the Artists of Santa Barbara County at a book signing and sale during First Thursday, from 5 to 8 p.m. next Thursday at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art store, 1130 State St.

The event is free. Free limited-edition posters signed by the artist will be available.

Included are 71 local artists chosen personally by Halper in his second book on Santa Barbara. Interspersed with still-life photos of the tools of an artist are quotations from the famous and infamous.

In 2010, Halper created his first coffee-table book of portraits of the vintners of Santa Barbara called Sunlight & Water.

Photography has always been a personal mission for Halper, and portraiture has been the cornerstone of both his commercial and fine art pursuits since first entering the field in 1989.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
