The picture above pretty much sums up the mood at the #iSnapSF show held at the Haus of Hipstamatic last night. It was my first show, but luckily I was in the company of Travis Jensen and Brad Evans, two extremely talented photographers (for more info about them, click here). The show and accompanying party was to celebrate the launch of their book, #iSnapSF (which you can and should get here, because it’s freaking awesome), which features a group of images snapped over the past four months using Hipstamatic. Pretty amazing.
The book is a two for one deal: If you buy it, you not only get something sweet to look at and read, the money you spend goes to Larkin Street Youth Services, a non-profit organization that provides services, including shelter, to at-risk youth youth living on the street. So what I’m telling you is that you can engage in guilt-free shopping. Get something great and feel great getting it. How do you like them apples?
The show went well. I learned some things. For example: Easels can be a dangerous game. I had my portrait taken by Vince Donovan, the man behind PhotoboothSF, one of my favorite places in the city. I took some pictures myself, which always makes me happy. And most importantly, lots of friends, old and new, showed up. I felt so loved, which was pretty terrific. Thanks, guys. And thanks, Hipstafolks, for asking me to show chez toi. What a thrill.
If you’re not all arted out at this point, I’m in another show, One or Two Things I Know About Her, at RGB shop and gallery. The opening is tomorrow (2/25), from 6-10. Stop by, look at some art, try on some clothes, listen to some tunes, and drink some stuff. RGB, 3024 Union Street @ Fillmore.
Yeah. Sometimes you just know.
