Sally Mann: Thoughts on Instagram

Screen Shot 2013-08-13 at 7.41.21 PMScreen Shot 2013-08-13 at 7.41.42 PM American Photo did an interview in October of 2012 with Sally Mann.  What is she up to through thoughts on the state of modern photography including Instagram.  Interesting if you like her. Above are some of her tintype self portraits.  If you are inspired by her work, I am teaching a tintype in camera workshop this starting this Saturday at Rayko Photo Center, SF.

Keep'n it Classy,


Cindy Sherman At the MOMA SF

Just a reminder to all you photo enthusiast to go see the Cindy Sherman show at SF MOMA.  Check out the crazy clown time, it is boat loads of fun.  I saw the show when it was at NYC MOMA, and seeing it at SF MOMA just reminds me how small SF is compared to NY because they couldn't fit the same amount of images in the show here. -C-

Not Kansas: New Show At Rayko Photo Center

As you all know, I'm tied to Rayko in unimaginable ways so I have to promote when they have a great new show up.  Starting tomorrow, there is a fantastic show at the NEW RAYKO.  It features great work from the  printing master, Chris McCaw, and a featured PDN photographer (see below) Alison Carey, and much more.  In addition, one of my new favorite photographers, SheSaidRed, has a bunch of new work in the Crafted at Rayko side gallery.  It's a new thing Rayko is trying out, highlighting work that is being made at our wonderful facility.  Examples that don't compare to seeing the prints in real life are just below:  

Here is a note from the beloved Gallery Director of Rayko, Ann Jastrab:

Hello photographers and friends of photography,

I'm almost finished installing this great show, "Not Kansas: photographers explore their own worlds." Stop by RayKo between 6-8pm tomorrow to see original works by Elisabeth Ajtay, Tami Bone, Alison Carey, Christopher Colville, Jeremy Dyer, German Herrera, Tomiko Jones, Chris McCaw, Robin Robinson, and Curtis Wehrfritz. Everything from ambrotypes, daguerreotypes,  and gelatin silver prints, to chromogenic prints and beyond. You'll definitely feel like you're not in Kansas anymore. Here's a link to the PDN photo of the day today which will give you a sneak peek at one of the works in the show:
The side gallery also features great local talent: shesaidred, David Beck, Cynthia King, and Jordan Joel Pennock. Many of the artists will be in attendance so come meet them and have a glass of wine. Street parking is free after 6 and the Giants are playing out of town. Hope to see you all Thursday. If you can't make it this week, the exhibition will be up through August 31st.
Looking forward,
