San Francisco Fort Mason Foundation and The Nocturnes proudly announce the opening of "Nocturnes: Fort Mason & Environs”," a dynamic new photography exhibition exploring the night landscape of the area kicks-off the month-long celebration of night photography at Fort Mason. The three-month exhibition features over a two dozen established and emerging Bay Area night photographers.
"Nocturnes: Fort Mason & Environs," curated by Tim Baskerville of the San Francisco-based Nocturnes, launches a month-long celebration of night photography at Fort Mason. The next event will be a weekend night photography workshop to be held on October 18th, 19th and 20th and is for those interested in exploring with their camera the mystique and possibilities of night photography under the light of the Full Hunter’s Moon.
For the final event on October 19th and 20th Tim Baskerville will participate in San Francisco Open Studios with a showing at the Gatehouse at Fort Mason where his dynamic night images can be viewed up close and informal discussions with the artist can take place.
With the opening of the Fort Mason show Tim Baskerville says his purpose in assembling this show during the autumn season is intentional. “Fall is an ideal time for Bay Area night photographers to do their work due to the warmer weather patterns and longer evenings.” With the exhibition’s theme focused on Fort Mason, viewers of the show “can build a dialogue between what they have seen during daylight hours and in turn see the transformation of place into a whole new world.”
The Nocturnes, formed in 1996, was founded by Tim Baskerville and East-Coast based photographer Lance Keimig. Its mission is dedicated to education, history and the promotion of night photography.
