Former professional skateboarder, actor, director and photographer Jason Lee joins a virtual, pay-what-you-wish entry event to chat about his work in photography.
The event, hosted by APA San Diego and the Museum of Photographic Arts, features a photographic talk and presentation dedicated to Lee’s work and the recent release of his third book, In The Gold Dust Rush, a 112-page book featuring a selection of Lee’s previously unpublished American black-and-white film photographs spanning from 2008 to 2020.
The Southern California native started taking road trips more than a decade ago around the American West, where he documented his trips through the lens of his camera. Through this event, fans of Lee and photography alike will have an exclusive look into Lee’s photographic works and the inspiration behind his new book.
After establishing a successful career as a professional skateboarder during the industry’s pivotal late ’80s and early ’90s period, Lee went on to pursue acting in 1994, which led to a career in film, television, and voiceover, with such directors as Kevin Smith, Cameron Crowe, Lawrence Kasdan, and Rebecca Miller.
APA San Diego and MOPA welcome attendees for this event through a donation-based ticket cost. Attendees can enjoy access to this exclusive conversation with suggested donations of $10. All proceeds from ticket sales will benefit The Gordon Parks Foundation, an organization that permanently preserves the work of late African-American photographer Gordon Parks and supports and produces artistic and educational initiatives that advance his legacy and vision for social justice.
