Curator Michelle Bello is pleased to present this major photographic work by Sean McFarland at Sloan Miyasato Fine Art. The piece includes 64 cyanotypes representing the phenomenon of viewing the moon during the daytime. Employing the early photographic process of cyanotype, McFarland made these images without a camera by placing an object–a nickel to depict the moon–directly onto the surface of light-sensitive paper and then exposed it to light. The result resembles multiple moons against a blue sky.

McFarland received his MFA from the California College of the Arts and teaches at the San Francisco Art Institute.  He received the Phelan Art Award in photography, a fellowship from the National Photography Institute at Columbia University, a Baum Award for an Emerging American Photographer, a John Guttmann Photography Fellowship, and a Eureka Fellowship. His work is held in the permanent collections of the Whitney Museum of American Art Library in New York City, Milwaukee Art Museum, Berkeley Art Museum, Oakland Museum of California, and San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
