"It was twenty years ago today . . ."

Hard to believe, but it's been twenty years since a small band of photographers presented their best work to an unsuspecting world in an auspicious exhibit simply titled "The Nocturnes." From those humble beginnings, the mission of The Nocturnes as a group - no, make that "a gathering" - of Night Photographers has been one of education, community building, and the showcasing of evocative nocturnal photography.

This exhibit, which opens at the Harvey Milk Photo Center, in San Francisco, is part of a year-long celebration of their 20th anniversary, and features (amongst others) the work of legendary Night Photographer/Educator and mentor, Steve Harper - as well as work by Harvey Milk Center Instructor and Director of The Nocturnes, Tim Baskerville.

November 9 to December 3, with a Opening Reception for the Artists on Nov. 9 from 6:30 to 9pm; 50 Scott. St at Duboce.
