SF Bay Month of Photography

There are a host of cool photographic events and exhibits this September, all month, all over town. Organized by the BAYMOP,  it should be a treat for the photo-oriented. NEOMODERN is participating by hosting a series of TUESDAY TALKS (every Tuesday in September from 6-7pm). Each talk will get up-close with some beautiful prints, and dive into some creative and historical topics, a different theme each week. I'll be talking about prints from the collection here and adding in work by local artists.

Here's the line-up:

SEPT 4: Harry Callahan, Wright Morris and Photographic Composition

SEPT 11: Henri Cartier–Bresson and the Decisive Moment

SEPT 18: Humor and Creative Juxtapositions: Elliot Erwitt and Robert Doisneau

SEPT 25: Beyond Cliché: The work of Michael Kenna and Josef Koudelka

Come on by, it should be fun and interesting (and a great way to see some fantastic museum prints up close). I think this will be good not only for the photo-oriented, but anyone who is interested in seeing their smartphone pictures get better quickly.
