ABOUT OUR VENUE HOST
Founded in 1974, SF Camerawork's mission is to encourage and support emerging artists to explore new directions and ideas in the photographic arts.
It Smells Like Sweet Apples
Mustard gas smells like sweet apples. Refugees don’t talk about our past. This work is in search of words for what people don’t talk about.
This exhibition is my physical representation of the things that have made me the man I am today and also the things that allow me to reflect on black families and the beautiful dynamic of our “Living Room”.
In Plain Site
Superfunds, plumes and the vestige of Silicon Valley manufacturing era.
This series is based on the idea that the current sense of disenfranchisement derives from the fundamental disconnect we have from the natural world and the social isolation that comes with it.
