For almost a year, I have been shooting events for Alexander Salazar, for his Fineart gallery at the corner of 7th and Broadway, and at the Contemporary White Box gallery, between Broadway and “C” street, also on 7th avenue, and most recently, his exhibit space in La Jolla. … Inadvertendtly, the collection of galleries create a reverse chronological history of those events.
You can go and meander through the past year, and you can find all the events that you attended, by name and by date.
This is a link to a single page with all the galeries in reverse order. Link to the 48 Galleries.
The dates are listed like this, YearMonthDate, for example these are the four most recent events. …
I shot this yesterday evening. I am posting it right now because, this evening, February 04, 2012, at the Alexander Salazar Fineart Contemporary Exhibit space in La Jolla, Fred Briscoe will be in attendence.
You can meet him, and ask about his creative process concerning general information, or the particular pieces on display. He works in stone and various metals.
And, he is a very nice man.
(Addendum 20120206) By the way. I had met Fred a couple years ago when I was shooting for the San Diego Fine Arts Society’s creator, April Game. The San Diego Fine Arts Society has metamorphosed into artpulse, and April Game is the Executive Director.
I have gotten really lucky to shoot some images for the Snapshots Foundation. It has taken me to several wonderful locations where I get a chance to combine some of my theatrical history and my photographic talents, in my quest for images of historical value.
This is one of those images. When you look at it a certain way, it is an eye. It is an eye seen from the furthest point away from center stage, where the minds eye of the audience can see the eye of the theatre.
People collect interesting things. … I just love this man, sitting in his domain, among all the things he has chosen as having value.
The circumstances of each acquisition captures my imagination as I look at each item in this image. Where did he see this item first? When he picked it up, was there a little glint in his eye, or was it just a business question?
And I love the little “Antiques ->” sign with the arrow pointing at the man. And, I get a kick out of the little, “etc.” sign that sits above his head like a thought bubble in a comic book.
I love these shiny balls. Everyone of them is a locus of intellectuality. … In this image, the reflective ball captures, not only the world in a sphere, but the entire universe. In that miniature captured Universe, everything can be held in your hand. If you can hold it in your hand, you can perceive the reality of it.
I am starting to get a little excited becaus the Snapshots Foundation is about to actually be born. I honestly do not know all the people involved with the entire project, but Jonathan Bewley has been working for a while to bring it to fruition.
