JOHN CHIARA | PIER 24 Photography | VIDEO: Oakland Bay Bridge and Golden Gate Bridge

Pier 24 Photography is pleased to announce a new series of original artist videos. Each video features a single artist discussing his or her images, ideas and process. Throughout the year, Pier 24 will release additional artist videos about photographers in our exhibitions and from the collection.

Launching the series are two videos produced with photographers John Chiara and Doug Rickard, both featured in our current exhibition, HERE., on view through December 16th.

John Chiara: Oakland Bay Bridge and Golden Gate Bridge
Presented in the exhibition HERE.
Pier 24 Photography / May 23rd - December 16th

John Chiara photographs landscapes in a process that is part photography, part event, and part sculpture - an undertaking in apparatus and patience. Many times this process involves composing pictures from the inside of a large hand-built camera, that is mounted on a flatbed trailer, and produces large scale, one of a kind, positive exposures. Two works investigating the gateways of San Francisco, the Oakland Bay Bridge and the Golden Gate Bridge, are included in Pier 24 Photography's recent exhibition, HERE., on view May 23rd - December 16th.
