A panel of contemporary and classic nightlife photographers and writers will join Melissa Hawkins to share their favorite photographs and stories of venturing into the night. They will also discuss their professional methods, techniques, and address the challenges and rewards of ever-changing camera technologies, the rise of social media and selfies, and evolving denizens' attitudes toward being photographed in the midst of debauchery.

This program is part of the SoMa Nights: The Queer Club Photography of Melissa Hawkins exhibition, on view through May 27, 2019.
