    Frisco Photography Galleries

    Hello,

    I'm a french photographer and I shall visit San Francisco this summer (July). As I intend to visit photography exhibitions (and may be to buy photographs), I'm looking for Photography galleries in Frisco. Does anyone could advise me some and provide address ?
    Thank you

    I know them all. When you get here if it is later in the month of July, I can personally show you around. Either that or If I am still in Santa Fe at that time, I will send you a map of where to find the galleries.

    I might suggest that you not call it "Frisco" once you get here. Best to refer to it simplty as "The City".

    Hi zonesys,
    The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (see the web site:http://www.sfmoma.org) is the only museum that I have actually visited in SF. It has several photography exibits and always seems to have a few travelling exibits as well. Highly recommended. Get there EARLY and wear comfortable shoes. Oh, and if I remember correctly, they are kinda funny about patrons carrying cameras / taking photos of the art on display. I believe that photgraphy is not allowed - even if sans flash.

    I would also very strongly recommend a visit to the Oakland Museum of California which is just across the bay. It houses a wonderful collection of Dorthea Lang's work. For more information, see the web site: http://www.museumca.org/global/art/c...hea_lange.html. If my schedule permits, I would love to accompany you and Aggie to the Oakland Museum.

    I will be in town during those dates, sounds like a plan to hit them. I also know that Fort Mason has a small gallery, there are several near on or near Market street and union square area, I can walk right to them just don't know their names. Some times the Place of fine arts has a photography display. Going out further than the City or Oakland, I highly reccomend hitting the Mumm Winery in Napa. They have a wonderful gallery, and a permenant rotating gallery of at least 40 of Ansel Adams orginal prints.
