3D City: Think Outside

3D City is a year long stereoscopic photography project by Doctor Popular.

Developing a roll of film is often like scratching off a lottery ticket. A thrill of what you may find followed by the urge to do it again and again. Come to think of it, maybe I’d save some money switching to the lotto. This batch of shots comes mostly from December in SF. Shot on my trusty old Nimslo.

3D City: Electric Dreaming

3D City is a year long stereoscopic photography project by Doctor Popular.

My friend Rusty has been working on an awesome new “email zine” called Rusty’s Electric Dreams. It’s a weekly email list filled with weird news stories, Bay Area events, and art and it’s pretty damn awesome. Each month, Rusty features a new artist-in-residence to work with and I’ve been lucky enough to be that featured artist for December.

For the past few weeks, I’ve been sharing these images exclusively through her zine and I’m thrilled to finally share them here with you guys. This collection has focused on the scenes and faces of San Franciscio, including the legendary Frank Chu, a rioter from this year’s Giant Series (not previously shown in my 3D City shots from that same night), The Green Door massage parlor, and an epic shot from our camping trip on the nearby Angel Island. There’s still one more piece to come in tomorrow’s issue of Electric Dreaming, so sign up here if you’d like to see it.

Lovely view of the Mission and the sky from high atop Bernal

This is but one of a whole mess of lovely photos from a recent trip to the top of the hill by hotgranola.

Group photo show at Cha Cha Cha

I know, it’s raining. If you’re stir crazy from sheltering in place all day today, here’s a good reason to venture out. Our good buddy Troy Holden wrote in to let us know that tonight (Thursday) is the opening for a group photo exhibition, featuring his own work as well as the works of Dave Glass and Emmanuel Blackwell. These are all photographers I admire, each one capturing a very real, very valuable and very unique side of our city’s life. Troy adds:

“We’ve taken down all the old random photos at Cha Cha Cha and replaced them with huge (4 feet!) photos of the neighborhood around 19th and Mission Street. The printer did amazing work. The photos span from the late 1960s through 2014 and are a permanent installation. A second round will be installed in the spring.”

Soak up some rainy day wigglegrams, courtesy of a rusty old Nimslo camera and a soggy roll of Ilford HP5. Speaking of, thanks to all the folks who have helped keep the film rolling by supporting 3D City’s Patreon project.
