Preview: "Synonymous" Summer Group Exhibition in SF

By - Tuesday, August 6th, 2013

The group exhibition Synonymous at 1AM Gallery in San Francisco promises an intriguing look at street and skate culture. The show will showcase photography from five different artists who have spent their lives immersed in skate culture, helping to build and represent the eclectic San Francisco skate scene through Benny Gold, FTC, DLX SF, Paradise Wheels, Snack Skateboards, Slap Magazine, LowCard Magazine, Magenta Skateboards and Politic Skateboards. Expect to see images depicting skate and street culture, skater portraits, and landscape shots of the beautiful Bay Area. In essence, these images are relics from the lives of these artists and the communities around them. Christopher Atwood captures scenes “about the good times, the weekends, the moments and people that, in the long run, add up to the larger picture in life”. Photographer Joseph Staley says: “the act of urban skateboarding demands an awareness of one’s surroundings. As a photographer I strive to capture the moments in between the action-the second someone’s guard comes down, or the activity going on unnoticed around us. As skateboarders, these are the images of our everyday, of our lives.” If you’re in the Bay Area, be sure to stop by 1AMSF and check out the show.
