Tonight : Lecture at The Battery Club SF
Here's what they say :
The Photography Salon opens on Thursday, March 19, at 7 p.m. In the salon, successful commercial photographer Timothy Archibald will be showing deeply personal and profound portraits of his autistic son Eli. Collected in the book "Echolilia," the photos show the young boy exploring his environment and trying out sensory experiences that might take him out of his isolated state. Archibald also documents his son’s art and writing projects, which quietly speak to his desire to know and communicate.
Berkeley-based Mimi Plumb will present selections from her wide-ranging photographic oeuvre over several decades with a recurring theme of women and girls. Her documentation of Cesar Chavez and the United Farm Workers in the 1970s is one of the most notable records of that important historic period. An avid horsewoman, she has also perfected the equine portrait, lending as much feeling and pathos to her animal subjects as her human ones.
Almost everyone living in San Francisco has a relationship to the iconic Mission District. Judy Walgren, who heads photography at the San Francisco Chronicle will provide the back story to the paper's stunning and provocative visual series documenting how the Mission District is changing during this boom time.
