Pier 24 Gallery

Todd Hido invited us to go with his class to Pier 24 Gallery, in San Francisco to see the exhibition "Here". This exhibition presents a selection of works produced by Bay Area photographers as well as a range of images of San Francisco, with an emphasis on the late-twentieth century. HERE. highlights the vibrancy of San Francisco and the surrounding areas through the work of 34 photographers and over 700 images.
The gallery is huge and the exhibition was one of the best photography exhibitions we have seen in a long time. All the work was truly inspiring, beautifully curated and presented. Here is a selection of some of those on show, would have like to have put them all up but takes to much time.

 We didn't know the work of Leon Borensztein before this exhibition. Amazing Portraits, looking forward to seeing his new book, Leon Borensztein: American Portraits 1979-1989 published by Nazraeli Press which is due out any day soon.

 We've never seen this early work by Richard Misrach. Mostly portraits around Telegraph Ave in Berkeley.  An interview with Aaron Schuman in Seasaw magazine.
We also went to an opening in Berkeley of his exhibition  1991: Oakland-Berkeley Fire Aftermath, which he has only just released, 20 years after the event! Interview with some of the images here, well worth a look.
