"Watching the ships roll in
Then I watch th
em roll away again.
I'm sitting on the dock of the bay
Watching the tide roll away
I'm just sitting on the dock of the bay
Wasting time
. . ." (Otis Redding, 1967)

The Nocturnes, the photographic collective based in San Francisco, will be hosting "Embarcadero Nocturne," an exhibit of Night Photography, with the work of 22 local Night Photographers at several venues (see details) along the Embarcadero and at Fort Mason, San Francisco's pre-eminent center for the Arts.

Ferry Building - Study 2, by Tim Baskerville

As Tim Baskerville, Founder and Director of The Nocturnes, explains: "The focus of the exhibit, "Embarcadero Nocturne" is on San Francisco's revitalized waterfront - from the Ball Park on the south, to Pier 35, at the north end. I had photographed this area extensively, prior to, and immediately after, the Loma Prieta earthquake of 1989 - then, it was an area marked by monolithic freeway ramps and derelict piers and trainyards. As all San Franciscans know, since that monumental 15-second event, the Embarcadero has been transformed, in many wonderful, unforeseen ways. This juried exhibit reflects on some of that change, and was open to all different interpretations - the only criteria was that images be taken from, looking at, or be about the Embarcadero, San Francisco's waterfront!" With this recently transformed area of San Francisco as its theme, and night photography, and its inherent transformative ability, as the vehicle, this show presents some engaging imagery, by an accomplished group of San Francisco photographers
