Surrounded by Reality

April 13 – May 12, 2017

Exhibit of Street Photography by San Francisco Street Photography Group

The San Francisco Street Photography Group (SFSP) is proud to announce its second exhibition at the renowned Harvey Milk Photo Center, located in San Francisco, California. This exhibition, called “Surrounded by Reality” after a well-known quip by Jefferson Airplane guitarist Paul Kantner, aims to demonstrate the breadth, scope and skills of the group members capturing the vastness that is today’s San Francisco.

Street photography is about people. Street photographers try to capture everyday humanity in the midst of a “Defining Moment”, hoping for the odd candidly taken shot with perfect timing that says it all in a single frame. The effect of such a photograph is to call attention to the often overlooked instances around us in our daily life, or to resonate with a viewer as a familiar moment in their life, or to provoke the viewer to stop and question their own social perspectives.

“Surrounded by Reality” aims to feature one photograph from each participating SFSP member. In addition, the gallery alcove will feature “SFSP Photogs In Action”: candid snapshots of SFSP photographers exercising their craft! Photos of photographers photographing are always fun and are a good spark for conversation.
