Artist/Curator: Ted Pushinsky
Displayed January 13, 2018 – February 24, 2018
The final show from legendary street photographer Ted Pushinsky before his death in January of 2018, Local Stories was a collection of photos of San Francisco (primarily The Mission District) from the past 30 years. A great deal has changed over that time period and Pushinsky’s work serves as essential documentation of that transition. 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.
We are truly honored to have hosted Ted’s final exhibition, which was also his only retrospective show held in the Mission. Although he has left us, he lives on through his work. We see the soul of San Francisco in Ted’s work, and that is his legacy.
