    Ratio 3 Gallery: Ryan McGinley - Paradiso

    Comment by AB: Arcadian images of nudes in landscapes by Ryan McGinley suggest an idyllic existence where all is well. For those of you playing the home game, the photographs were taken in Upstate New York during the fall/winter transition.

    Juan R Fuentes Gallery: Local Stories - Photos of San Francisco by Ted Pushinsky

    Comment by AB: Take a trip back to San Francisco of the 1970s and early 80s through the street-photographer eyes of Ted Pushinsky. Our city sure ain't what it used to be; you realize that in an instant. Very sad to say that Ted lost his battle with cancer only a few days after the show opened. RIP Ted. You will be dearly and deeply missed.
