The opening was a great success. From choosing images in New York to installation in San Francisco, it all came together simply and elegantly. It was so great, in fact, that we are having an encore + after party on Saturday June 3rd, 4-9 pm garnished with compelling stories by Peter.
Play this music to feel happy. Play this music to dance. Play this music to hear what inspired Peter to take his journeys to Africa. Play this music to smile. Play this music below.
Peter Bogardus is a photographer, printer, and book artist best known for his photogravure images documenting spiritual life in Africa. His pilgrimages have culminated in numerous books, the latest of which, Places of Reverence, will be displayed in this exhibition. He shoots predominantly with a large format film camera and prints his images from etched copper plates as photogravures. His books and prints, both part of the exhibition, are produced in his studio in New York and issued under his own imprint, Khelcom New York. He is a 2012 recipient of the Guggenheim Fellowship Award for Photography.
