Join us on the evening of March 25th as we celebrate the work of Derek Macario. This solo exhibition will feature his evocative photographs of San Francisco / the surrounding Bay Area and reminds us that there's still so much beauty to be found in this city. Being native San Franciscans ourselves, this work is very dear to our hearts.
Derek Macario (b. 1992, San Francisco) constantly reflects on growing up in San Francisco. Filled with childhood nostalgia of growing up in the 90s and being immersed in public spaces, the subjects of Macario’s images are emblems of resistance to the rapid changes of the city - celebrating and preserving his environment; nature, landscape, and people less prominently observed today. Derek’s recent work examines the immediate surroundings of San Francisco’s physical peripheries.
Derek is a San Francisco based artist working primarily in film photography and the zine format. He earned his BA at SF State University in 2015, studying studio art with an emphasis in photography, and minored in journalism. Derek's work can be found in his self published zines at local zine/book/art shops, including Needles & Pens, Little Paper Planes, and Rare Device.
We will gather from 6-9pm at 1777 Yosemite Avenue Stuite 340. Hope to see you there!
