Photography show in a dirty old parking lot

Local photographer Troy Holden tells us all about it:

The prints are big — 8 feet long. We did this by breaking up each image into 1/4 and paneling them into the larger image. We then mixed fresh wheat paste in the parking lot using a camping heater and 50 lbs of flour. It took 8 hours, two 14 ft ladders, and 35 gallons of glue to mount all 22 images.

There’s some historical gems hung. Local favorite Dave Glass has photos from the 1960’s – 90’s, including a house on stilts being relocated from to the Western Addition and the 1982 Forty Niners parade on Market Street where SFPD are looking at a NUDE GIRLS cinema marquee. Emmanuel Blackwell has a photo of now-gone Candlestick.

Other contributors include Rian Dundon, David Root and Holden himself.

The lot is located at 181 2nd Street, and the show is open to the public as long as the lot is open (which is during normal business hours), and the opening reception is this Thursday, 5-7pm. RSVP and invite your friends.

  1. Kuo also claims that Apple will indeed rectify the iPhone 6 “Bendgate” problem with different casing materials and some changes to the internal mechanical design. Some believe that Apple will use the same custom Series 7000 aluminum alloy that it uses in its Apple Watch Sport.

  2. Checked this out yesterday. Really liked it. Not just the parking lot turned gallery, but the photos were great too.
