Currently on view at Needles and Pens Gallery in San Francisco is the exhibition Some Word Pictures, featuring documentation of the river, road and freight train travels of artists Bill Daniel and Santiago Mostyn. The exhibition uses photographic and written documentation to capture the spirt of the journey, focusing on the act of story-telling as it relates to traditions and folklore. The exhibition manifests into a myriad of images and writings that culminate into a collective memory of a transient America. The exhibition offers insight into the lifestyle of these travels and individuals met along the way.
Artist and activist Bill Daniel became known for his acclaimed documentary Who’s Bozo Texino?, and the Bozo Texino companion book, Mostly True. Santiago Mostyn is photographer known for his documentation of freight trains and yards, as well as the author of the recently published TV Books.
Some Word Pictures will be on view through February.
