Alameda on Camera 2018
not seen by the naked eye. It is rank yellow with orange streaks, all rushing movement. Michael Teresko walked the boatyard and through his viewfinder found big pure shapes which he designed with flat colors used as value.
An unexpected viewpoint made for some interesting images. Bonnie Blake-Drucker stood behind the musicians looking out at the “Cuban Dancers.” Luis Solorzano sent a drone to look down upon the “Park St. Bridge” to capture a image of the man-made green span over the neutral natural green of the water.
There are not many images of people but one in particular represents an aspect of Alameda so characteristic, it serves as a portrait of the time when the West end was active naval military and Webster st. was mostly bars, tattoo parlors and ladies of the night. Lawrence Freeman’s “Vigilance, Virtue, Victory” shows the wizened face of military veteran in front of an American flag. He eyes look directly into the camera. One eye registers his idealism, the other his cynicism.
Alameda on Camera will hang until May 26. The gallery is open Thursday-Sunday 11-5
