On my way the Electric Works Gallery in SF last week, I passed a storefront display of mannequins. Just mannequins, in many colors and sizes. I couldn’t get a good photo with the glare from the window, so I went in.
The proprietor gave me permission to take pictures as long as I didn’t touch the mannequins. I didn’t need too, because they were already in such surreal groupings and poses. All I had to do was shoot.
The gallery show was really good. Very large prints of photos by Katherine Westerhout taken in abandoned factories and train stations; just my kind of thing. The Electric Works also has a store selling artist’s books and products and other goofy stuff like toy wind-up squirrels. I recommend it.
