After Dark: Photography

Motes of light, chemicals and techniques common and obscure, glass plates and paper, robots, pigeons and kites - all have played, and continue to play, a role in capturing fleeting time and faraway places in photographic images. Join us for an evening exploring photography’s evolution from analog to digital, looking at photographic printing techniques, and hearing from photographers about their art and craft and what makes an image memorable.

Not a theater, cabaret, or gallery, Exploratorium's After Dark contains aspects of all three. Each evening showcases a different topic - from music to sex to electricity - but all include a cash bar and film screenings, plus an opportunity to play with our hundreds of hands-on exhibits.
