Are you in San Franciso? Jonathan Darby is, and the good news is he’s exhibiting his stunning work. He is having a dual exhibition with Adam Caldwell. The opening reception will be Saturday, June 11, from 7-11 pm, and the exhibition is free and open to the public for viewing through July 2. The location? White Walls 835 Larkin St, San Francisco, CA.
“People know that the situation for children in Brazil is bad. But I don’t really think they know quite how bad it really is. And these pictures show them that.”
I agree with Mr Darby, i find his work extremely harrowing and yet strangely beautiful. I suppose this is a perfect depiction of the situation he aims to capture, beauty and disaster seem to be close friends throughout the environment of the slums.
Darby has produced a charity print (see above) to coincide with the exhibition will all proceeds being donated to CARF.
