The Highline Historical Society is hosting a “Now and Then” presentation by popular documentary photographers/historians/authors Paul Dorpat and Jean Sherrard on Saturday, January 24, 2 PM at SeaTac City Hall.
Dorpat has written his popular column for The Seattle Times’ Sunday magazine since 1982, and has published a dozen books, including three volumes of regional now-and-then photographic comparisons drawn from his column, and “Building Washington,” an illustrated encyclopedic study of the state's historical development that he co-authored with Genevieve McCoy. Dorpat's collaboration with Jean Sherrard began in 1999 with the production of bumberchronicles, a video history of Bumbershoot, for KCTS-9. In 2004, Sherrard began helping with the “now” photographs for Dorpat’s column.
This program is free to Highline Historical Society members who can show their current membership card. An $8 donation is requested of all others. SeaTac City Hall is located at 4800 S 188th Street in SeaTac. Parking is free. For more information, visit www.highlinehistory.org.
