This event is supported by the BSA Foundation.

Boston, a historic city with an extremely unique built environment, is again trying to reinvent itself without self-destruction. Beloved architectural photographer Peter Vanderwarker will examine this phenomenon, with extensive reference to maps and his award-winning photographs. Please join us for a reception and conversation with the speaker after the lecture.

Peter Vanderwarker is a photographer and author. His books include "The Big Dig: Reshaping an American City" and "Cityscapes of Boston" co-authored with Robert Campbell. His photographs are in the collections of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and the Houston Museum of Fine Art. His work has won Institute Honors from the American Institute of Architects, and he was a Loeb Fellow at Harvard University in 1997. He is represented by Gallery NAGA in Boston.

Through its Speaker Series, the Old North Foundation seeks to provide historically-based educational opportunities for the general public, foster community interaction and insight within a framework of freedom and liberty, attract new visitors to Old North Church, and promote regional and national history luminaries.
