Gallery Carte Blanche is pleased to announce the celebration of its one-year anniversary and the opening of Call Me Home featuring a series of photographs taken in San Francisco by 5 local photographers, Kirk Crippens, Alan W George, Esmeralda Ruiz, Charity Vargas & Winni Wintermeyer.Call Me Home is the exclamation mark after “Happy one year anniversary Carte Blanche!”.
On November 25th 2011, Carte Blanche opened its doors in the city where anything is possible. Since we’ve opened, countless photography lovers and talented artists have brought this space to life. Hundreds of photographs and books have decorated the walls, shelves and tables, transforming the gallery into the home for photography it was meant to be. Celebrating international vision and talent, Carte Blanche relies on the passion and commitment of photographers from around the world, and from just around the corner.
After one year of multicultural discoveries and international inspiration, Carte Blanche is happy to culminate with a splash of local talent. The 5 photographers of Call me Home might not be native San Franciscans, but they have all adopted this city as their new home and are active participants in this place that we all love.
An artistic inspiration for generations, San Francisco enchants and fascinates. The diversity and vibrancy of the City by the Bay, make it a mysterious harbor, a place where life is quirky and good for people from all over. The photographers of Call Me Home capture the wonders of San Francisco and engage with the landscape to explore the paradox of the city, from its foggy vistas to its neon-lit alleys.
Call Me Home is an homage to San Francisco, celebrating artists from all horizons who call this city Home.
