Portrait of America show this weekend

The Portrait of America show is this weekend. I’ve started to hang the prints.

This show is part of SF Open Studios, so it’s taking place in my studio, otherwise known as the garage. And like a typical garage, it has a big door that faces the street and opens on the sidewalk. I’ve been told I should be discrete, so I’ve done most of the work with the door closed.

This afternoon I had the door open for a couple of minutes just when a young woman walked by. Like most people she glanced in the garage as she passed. Usually people get to see me making pieces of wood into smaller pieces of wood. But this time there were a lot of very nude people on the wall.

She did a double take and came back for another look. She said she’d like to get naked and join them.

There you have it, the first public review of the show.

Preview is Friday, 25 October 2019 from 4-7pm. Wine, beer, and snacks.

Regular shows are Saturday and Sunday, 26-27 October 2019 from 11am to 6pm.

Hope to see you there.

Portrait of America Show

Later this month I’ll be showing 20 Portrait of America images in my studio. The full size, fully nude images are arranged in an oval with the viewers in the middle surrounded by nudity.

A couple of years ago, Michael A. Rosen and Charles Gatewood served as props to demonstrate the scale of the installation. The show looks the same, except there’s more.

Here’s the official (censored) show announcement postcard. The show is uncensored. Nude images where the people are actually nude. What a shocker!


Big prints, small prints, books, postcards, and t-shirts available for purchase. Buy direct from the photographer. No dealer markup = half price.

Hope to see you there.
