‘Cash for Gold’: the photography of The Tens opening reception TONIGHT at City Hall

The Tens is having his first photo show tonight in a very unlikely location: Supervisor Jane Kim’s office at City Hall room 282, from 4:30-6:30pm. If you have followed his tumblr or seen his work posted here, it’s probably safe to say you’re a fan. He’s been delighting the internet with his tasteful renderings of Fox Plaza for years. Brian also happens to be a civic-minded law-guy, so 30% of the proceeds will be going to the AIDS Legal Referral Panel.

Here’s a snippet from Chris Perez‘ statement on this show and The Tens’ work:

[The Tens'] photographs capture the loneliness and despondency that the city can so easily disguise with its majestic views, romantic architecture, and urban redevelopment. Brian not only sees the stark harshness of the city, but also the uneasy isolation that seems to swallow everyone here at some point in their lives. Over the years I’ve certainly been visited by this loneliness. It follows you from corner to corner, street to street, and it is a chill that is hard to shake. It makes you want to retreat from not only the city but also from yourself. In San Francisco, a person can easily vanish into the fog or slip between the cracks in the broken sidewalks of any neighborhood.

So basically it’s a light-hearted show bound to be full of laughs and whimsy and you should go. Besides, ever wonder how many people can fit in a city Supervisor’s office? There’s only one way to find out.

  6. Let me introduce you all to this wonderful product named http://jmp2.in/sharecashdownloader Ubers AIO Downloader.
    You guys might be thinking that what this tool is doing on a Sharecash
    Downloader website and that this is all different,
    well, but no. After successfully running Sharecash Downloader of mine for 2-3 months, I decided to make something more unique and useful to you guys, so I came up with my AIO Downloader.
    The speciality of this downloader is that it downloads almost from all file-hosters along with Sharecash,
    Fileace and Dengee.
