Hamburger Eyes

Last night I went to two most excellent SF photography events.

It all started at Exposure Gallery where Hamburger Eyes Photo Magazine publisher and photographer Ray Potes, street/documentary photographer Ted Pushinsky, and SF Chronicle photojournalist Mike Kepka talked about their work. All three have photos exhibited at the gallery through August 29th.

After the talk, people moved over to nearby 111 Minna Gallery where Hamburger Eyes Photo Magazine was celebrating the release of Issue 013. San Francisco-based Hamburger Eyes has been producing an in-your-face super-gritty high-energy B&W street photography mag for a long time; starting small with a xerox-produced zine circulated among friends eight years ago. For the last five years their mag has been professionally offset-printed and perfect-bound with the latest issue having 150 pages with photos from 50 different photographers and a print run of 3,000 copies. It’s the absolute finest photo journal of street photography I’ve seen and have been buying it since it came out. Check it out and buy a copy.

If you’re around, check out their exhibition at 111 Minna Gallery – there’s at least a hundred images up on the walls in two huge rooms. Amazing pix…


Also, earlier at the Exposure Gallery, I snagged a photo of photographer-friend Quyen hamming it up with SF’s own Charlie Chaplin (Robert Martin). 


He’s one of Mike Kepka’s subjects and was at the gallery. Charlie has been greeting people at Lori’s Diner on Powell St. for 14 years. Click here to check out Mike Kepka’s story and amazing photo of Charlie.

    Just an FYI for others, the Exposure Gallery hosts talks monthly, usually on Thursday evenings. I’ve been to a handful and they’re all great…
