Here, it’s beautiful / 2019

This collection of Glass Cathedral artboxes contains different perspectives of the San Francisco Bay Area. In Spring 2019 they will be dispersed in secret spots, treasured landmarks and community spaces in the bay area. The collection will then exhibited at Rare Device, San Francisco, opening in April 2019.

You know that feeling, of being in the right place, like you wouldn’t want to be anywhere else, and the world feels full of wonder and possibility? A sigh, an embrace, a tear, a whoop of joy, a deep breath… and the realisation, “Here, it’s beautiful”. Over the years, my work has focussed on capturing many of these beautiful places, moments really, in Glass Cathedrals for hundreds of people.

The “Here, it’s beautiful” refrain is the inspiration for my new collection, all about where I live – the San Francisco Bay Area. This focus has also given me the excuse I was looking for to explore dahlia farms and cemeteries and the shark-inhabited waters off the Farallon Islands…

The complete collection will be exhibited at Rare Device in San Francisco at the end of April 2019. For the month before, the Glass Cathedrals will be on shown in the places depicted (or nearby), to be enjoyed in their natural habitat :) and encourage exploration.
