Acción Latina’s Juan R. Fuentes Gallery
2958 24th Street, San Francisco
Ted Pushinsky has been taking pictures in the streets of San Francisco since he moved to the city in the late 1960s. He’s been called the “elder statesman” of San Francisco street photography and his work as part of the Hamburger Eyes photo collective has helped inspire a street-photography renaissance in the early 2000s.
Pushinsky’s upcoming show is a collection of his work—primarily photos of The Mission District—over the last 30 years. San Francisco and the Mission District, in particular, have changed a great deal and Ted has documented every stage of that transition. But, to use his own phrase, Ted is “no captive of nostalgia.” Comparing two photos he took on the corner of 24th and Mission (one in the 80s and one in the early 2000s) he said, “Those could be the same kids, the only thing that’s changed is the fashion.”
We are truly honored to host Ted in his first solo retrospective gallery exhibition in the Mission District.
