Sadly, today was the last day of the semester for First Exposures, until next fall. It crept up so fast! Since I’m going to be in NYC by August, it was the last time I’m probably going to see most of the youth in the program- that is, unless some of the younger kids are around in two years, when I come back to Cali. The morning was spent furiously helping to prepare pieces for the show, matting, cutting, and dying photos and splicing text.
If you’re in San Francisco, come check out this year’s First Exposures show on June 14th, at the pubic library! Every youth in the program will have at least one print up, and the work is pretty rad- from cyanotypes to c-prints to collage to regular old B&W fiber prints.
