Alternative Viewing

Some good photography currently to be found in some alternative gallery spaces if you're in San Francisco. The Photo Alliance has its 18 Months themed group show at City Hall which features some pretty damn good work. Some of my favorites include a couple of photographers I've never heard of before. Susan Lynn Smith's work has a beautiful sense of light and a wry sense of humor, Noah Beil has some beautifully composed landscapes, and Mimi Plumb has her intriguing minimalist horseback landscapes that I have seen previously on the web.

Elsewhere, in downtown San Francisco, don't miss the half dozen or so tree photographs by Alan George in a building lobby at 22 4St. They're large, gorgeous and as good as anything you'll see hanging in any major photo gallery in any major city, anywhere...
