"But the fool on the hill,
Sees the sun going down.
And the eyes in his head,
See the world spinning 'round."
The Nocturnes, along with Schnetzler Photography, will
be hosting "A Night on the Hill," an exhibit of Photography
by 17 local Night Photographers at Farley's on Potrero
Hill, in San Francisco, from May 3 - 31, 2005. A reception
the Artists will be held on May 22nd, from 5 to 7pm.

Tim Baskerville, Founder and Director of The Nocturnes,
had this to say about the exhibit: "The map below only
indicates some of the physical locations of the images
you see in this show. As Roger, Greta, and Manu have
pointed out, these photos are about an essence, a sense
of place, transformed through Night Photography. We
have presented many shows over the years, inviting photographers
to focus their lenses in the dark, on neighborhoods
as diverse as Soma, the Presidio, and the Embarcadero
- and we have seen fantastic work done there, but mostly
by what could be considered ‘visitors’ to those areas.
This exhibit, though, marks a truly neighborhood or
community response to our call for artwork. A neighborhood
is a place and people, after all - living and working
together toward a common good.”
