Last night’s opening reception for Brazilian street artist Arlin was incredible, and we at 1AM were so glad to see so many familiar faces, as well as the new ones we had the opportunity to meet. We’d like to thank everyone who came through and helped make the night a success. In case you weren’t able to catch your glimpse of Arlin’s liberated birds and geometric abstraction, you can always fly by the gallery and catch the show until December 15, 2016.

1AM Oakland Photo Show and 1 Year Anniversary Party!

1AM  is pleased to present a photography show & 1 year anniversary party for our Oakland location! Join us in celebrating on Saturday, November 19th from 7-10pm; bring your friends, the show is free and open to the public. This show features an eclectic body of work from local film photographers including Barrett Moore, Alex Ramos, Nick Garcia, Moe Alvarez, Steven Morris, Scotty Liberatore and curator Matthew Gregorio.

1AM Oakland was unveiled on November 19th, 2015, aiming to be an East Bay Hub for artists, classes, and events outside of our prominent San Francisco gallery and shop. 2016 was a transitional year for us, getting our bearings and easing into downtown Oakland’s art scene. Expect big things for 2017.

Artists Include:

 

Barrett Moore is a social documentary photographer, curator, and world traveler based out of San Francisco, CA. He has curated over forty-two art exhibitions, at venues such as Culture Skate Old Crow Tattoo  Gallery.  Barrett picked up his first point and shoot camera at the age of thirteen and ever since has grown in both love and passion for the art of photography as well as harnessed a deep appreciation for the beauty of everyday life.  Barrett works with analog film photography, however, his true artistry is defined by his eclectic, yet synthesized portfolio primarily showcasing city street life. Whether it be capturing the glitter or the grime, Barrett has a remarkable ability to form a coherent whole with all of his photographs.

Alex Ramos is a self taught photographer based out of Oakland, CA. His selection of photographs in this exhibition are from a B&W series he made in 2012 documenting forgotten rail lines of Oakland, CA and the surrounding Bay Area. His documentary style has a heavy focus on lines and shape with rich tonality. Ramos has a deep appreciation for railroads and has documented them significantly since he began photographing. To see more of his work, visit www.alexramosphoto.com or visit SFO Museum where a selection of his work will be on display between December 15th, 2016 – March 15, 2017 at Terminal 2.

 

Nighted Life self-publishes limited runs of high their quality zines and photo books, as well as works received by submission. The collective hosts photo shows and participates on zine events on a regular basis.

Nick Garcia is the founder of Nighted film photography collective and independent zine publishing/printing operation. He is currently based in Richmond, California.

Moe Alvarez is a 35mm Film Photographer from the East Bay. She is part of a film photography collective Nighted. Much of her work features candid images of her life and friends in the Bay. In her spare time, she also DJ’s soul and latin music with an all ladies vinyl club in Oakland called the B-Side Brujas.

 

Full Clip SF was started in 2015 by a group of local film photographers in the Bay Area, showcasing street and documentary style photography.

Matthew Gregorio started shooting in Southern California in 2008. Developing his style from mimicking collaged artworks, he uses a Canon Demi camera that shoots half frames. His photos result in a cause & effect situation, where one half of the photo maybe be taken months prior to the other. He is a part of Full Clip SF, a collective aiming to link up the best Bay Area film photographers.

Steven Morris is originally from Somerville, Massachusetts. At 15, Morris shot his first roll of 35mm film with his mother’s Pentax K1000.  Walking a fine line between opportunist and documentarian, Morris stays short but funky.

Scotty Liberatore started out his photography career on the east coast shooting skaters and portraits in the greater Boston Area. After moving to California he started experimenting with plastic cameras and shooting a more simplified style. His current body of work is a different take on portraits in the city in an ongoing double exposure project that reflects his life in San Francisco.
