Robert Cameron's Aerial Photography on display at the Metreon
|December 13, 2009||Posted by jamie under Art||
The Metreon is suffering an identity crisis on its first and mezzanine floors. One nice diversion occupying the former Sony Style store space on the southern end of the complex is a photography exhibition. The exhibition is called Environmental Journey: Robert Cameron’s Aerial Photography of our Pacific Rim.
You may have recently read that photographer Robert Cameron passed away in November at the fine age of 98. He was intimately involved in setting up this exhibition at The Metreon before he passed, I was told. The exhibition opened in September 2009.
In the Robert Cameron Above San Francisco 2010 calendar, there’s a beautiful photo of the Rincon Hill neighborhood with One Rincon Hill and The Infinity standing out for the month of September.
55 large format prints of bird’s eye view photographs of both the natural environment and the impact of humankind on the Pacific Rim fill the exhibition space at The Metreon. If you happen to go to The Metreon for a movie or just happen to be shopping nearby, stop in to take a look. They ask for a $5 donation from adults, free admission to adult-accompanied children.
