Tide Matthias Geiger
(September 6 October 20; Opening Reception Thursday, September 6 from 5 to 8 p.m.)
Matthias Geigers Tide series concerns itself with the ebb and flow of people as they pass through time and place. Using a computer-based technique of layering the still images he shoots, Geiger erases the physical presence of the figures in his work, leaving just a trace of their forms in the landscape. These almost metaphysical presences haunt places of transit and places of momentary rest.
This presentation of Geigers Tide is part of SF Cameraworks New Works Program, designed to foster the creation and presentation of work by notable emerging artists who explore innovative, and often challenging, visions through photography and related visual media.
The New Works Program is supported by a grant from the Andy Warhol Foundation for Visual Arts.
All exhibitions are on view Tuesdays Saturdays 12-5 p.m. at SF Camerawork, 657 Mission St., Second Floor. Admission is $5.00; $2.00 for students and seniors; free to Camerawork members. For more information, the public should visit www.sfcamerwork.org or call 415.512.2020.
