Back some months ago I walked into Photobooth to talk with Vince about the 81 Bees showing work. We started pondering what the theme should be. Vince said “Underwater” and I said ”Great” or “Awesome” or something along those lines. Then I informed the group, we started to shoot with various cameras and styles. These are the collective results of each person’s interpretation.
Thanks for taking a look 🙂 Clare
About 81 Bees (http://www.81bees.com/)
Born out of the recognition of a mutual passion and talent for photography, the group, 81 Bees, named after the CCSF Photography course “PHOTO 81b” formed in late Spring of 2008. They have organized many group shows in San Francisco and support each other in endeavors outside of the group. The “Bees” are continually inspiring, motivating and collaborating with each other, and are always learning from one another–whether it be new printing techniques or strategies for furthering themselves as artists.
