Night Photography - San Francisco Values

It's with great pleasure, not to mention civic pride, that I announce my upcoming "Jury Duty" with the San Francisco Art Commission and Photo Alliance for their exhibit, "Night/Light: Bay Area Photographers Take Aim After Dark." I will be acting as a Juror, along with Aimee Le Duc, Gallery Manager, San Francisco Arts Commission Gallery; and Thom Sempere, Executive Director, PhotoAlliance.

Open to residents of the nine-county SF Bay area (Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Solano and Sonoma Counties) the exhibit will " . . . explore what happens after sunset and before sunrise. Nighttime images of interest will range from landscapes to portraits, from photodocumentary essays to fantastical narratives. We’ll be looking for technical proficiency, creative innovation, and a wide variety of subject matter." [from the SFAC prospectus]

To be installed at San Francisco City Hall, Ground Level - the exhibition space can accommodate up to 100 photographs. Exhibition dates are September 16 – January 14, 2010

Sounds like something The Nocturnes can rise up to, no? We encourage you to follow this link for all the details. Only digital submissions will be accepted, along with a cover letter,etc. and mail or hand-delivered by August 14, to the San Francisco Arts Commission Gallery.

Why not show San Francisco, the local arts community, and visitors to the City, how it's done!
