Nocturnes & Noir in San Francisco / by John Ritchie


My photograph "Dispossessed" was accepted for the Nocturnes & Noir exhibit at the Harvey Milk Photo Center in San Francisco.  The exhibit, juried by Michael Kenna and Helen K. Garber, combines two schools of night photographic thought: the peace of the Nocturne with the darkness of Noir.  The exhibit celebrates the 25th anniversary of The Nocturnes Night Photography Group.

I've participated in Nocturnes exhibits before, but I was particularly pleased to have my photograph selected by Michael Kenna for this one.  His book "Mont St. Michel" was one of the first photography books I've purchased and his photographs have been an inspiration to me ever since.

The exhibit runs from February 11th through April 2nd, 2017 at the Harvey Milk Photo Center, 50 Scott Street, San Francisco.  There is an opening reception Saturday February 11th from 5:30 to 8:00 PM.
