Robert Dawson’s involvement with SF Camerawork includes two exhibitions (Mono Lake, 1982 and Farewell Promised Land: How Paradise Was Lost, 1998) and membership on the board of directors, as well as lectures, awards, and generous donations to our programs for over 30 years. Dawson’s early work focused on the shared commons of the landscape and environment of the American West, and on global water issues. “Jungle Books Library” is part of Dawson’s most recent series, The Global Library Project, which documents the important role of public libraries throughout the world in engaging and supporting an informed citizenry. Work from the project will be presented in a series of traveling exhibitions, videos, public programs, lectures, and publications.
