This is one of three of my photos that is going to be used in a group show that has it’s opening night reception this Wednesday, Aug 18 from 7-11 pm at 1270 Valencia St @ 24th.
The show is called 200 Yards and it is a photography experiment conceived of and presented by Lightbox SF. And it’s concept is really perfect for me!
First they picked a venue, Heart Wine Bar/Restaurant/Gallery. Then they put out a call to photographers to explore a 200 yard radius from the venue’s location and take pictures of whatever catches their eye. Each photographer then selected their best photos, up to 10, and submitted them for possible inclusion in a photo exhibit held at the originally selected center point.
The idea behind the project is to expose local photographers, the little details that make each block of San Francisco unique, as well as the merchants that give each neighborhood its character.
