wish i could be there. this exhibit just floored me: what a lot of good images i wish i'd shot myself. that's just not something you find much at photo exhibits, in my experience, no matter what style you like.


It was a good talk. SFMOMA should videotape them.

Wessel still teaches at SFAI.


There are some brief interviews with him on the computers at SFMOMA, but I can't seem to find them on their website.
