p.s. I'd like to give a resounding shout out, community embrace, and a campfire sing-a-long version of Kylie Minogue's Can't Get You Out of My Head for the inimitable genius (guardian angel) Kevin Killian, one of the founders and forever member of Right Window ("the best gallery in San Francisco"- K.K.). You will be missed, though you'll Always and Forever be in our heads. (Colter Jacobsen)
Gallery reception on Sunday, April 14 from 1-4
Right Window Gallery, 992 Valencia St., SF, CA
Right Window Gallery will host the first West Coast exhibit of Alan W. Bernheimer's Reflectographs, rare and unique photographic images created without a camera.
Starting in the 1960s, Bernheimer (1913-2006) produced an innovative body of photographic work that he called Reflectographs, made by reflecting light directly onto photosensitive paper, with the polished reflector acting as an imperfect lens, focusing and distorting the light to produce intricately textured shapes and patterns ranging from abstract to suggestive.
Bernheimer was professor of microbiology at the NYU School of Medicine, where his research focused on the structure and mechanisms of bacterial toxins. During the Second World War he developed a vaccine against gas gangrene. His Reflectographs were exhibited in galleries in New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Massachusetts, and featured in Leonardo, 35mm Photography, and the Encyclopedia of Photography.

March 4 – March 31
Closing party Sunday, March 31, 3–6pm
I will be “in residence”, working in the Right Window window, some of the mornings, most of the afternoons, and some of the evenings all through March. The DIALOGUES will take place throughout the month. Times and dates will not be announced; however, passers-by on Valencia Street will be able to watch our interactions, and read our written exchanges, as they happen, when they happen. Please pass by, and come to the closing party the afternoon of Sunday, March 31, to see some of the results of our time together.
