Laconia Gallery and the Griffin Museum of Photography present The Race: Tales in Flight

Patrick Nagatani’s novel “The Race: Tales in Flight” is the story of the discovery of Supermarine Spitfire aircraft buried in Burma at the end of World War II. The aircraft are brought to Tokyo and transformed with new technology into state-of-the-art floatplanes. Fifteen women pilots are selected to participate in a trans-Pacific race from Tokyo to San Francisco. The exhibition features a portrait of each plane flying into solitude.
