Santa Barbara Book-Signing

Macduff Everton’s The Book of Santa Barbara

Renowned panoramic photographer Macduff Everton recently trained his lens on his hometown of Santa Barbara. The result is a stunning 234-page book filled with familiar faces and places of our seaside town. Accompanying the photos are captions by artist Mary Heebner that give voice to the images. “Everton uses his panoramic camera to reveal the play of light on sea and rock, the quirky corners of historic landmarks, and the unexpected variety of lush gardens and open spaces,” the press release aptly describes. “And he highlights its private character by turning his lens on those who give the place its vitality and interpret it to the world—the athletes and scholars, entrepreneurs and farmers, artists and writers.” Everton will be signing copies of The Book of Santa Barbara on Tuesday, November 30, at 7 p.m. at Chaucer’s Books (3321 State St.).
