San Francisco Based Photographer Ricardo Hernandez-Machado





Ricardo Hernandez-Machado

Exhibition dates July 2, 2015- July 31, 2015
Opening Reception with the Artist July 12, 2015 1-4:00pm 
Gallery 1855 (820 Pole Line Road, Davis, CA) will host a special exhibition by San Francisco based artist Ricardo Hernandez-Machado. An opening reception will be held at the gallery Sunday, July 12th from 1-4:00pm.

Ricardo's work captures the images and shapes of people on the street as they are either lost in their own world or interacting with others around the city of San Francisco. He perfectly captures moments in time and the human experience as they relate to each other. In the moment, on some intuitive level, he sees shapes, and light, and emotions.  Not always in equal parts sometimes more composition, sometimes more emotion.  If there is a story, it emerges after the fact. In an era of digital manipulation, he does not re-touch his images by adding what was not there, or changing what was. He likes to share a photograph that shows that moment of reality with its main elements in place as he saw them. He tends to shoot more telephoto than wide angle because he likes to capture situations that are not affected by his intervention.  

About the Artist
Ricardo Hernandez-Machado

Ricardo is a San Francisco based photographer originally born and raised in Puerto Rico. After working in the video games industry for a while, during the work long hours one of his first digital cameras started to talking to him.

With an ever growing obsession to scan light and people on the streets at night, Ricardo came under the tutelage of Peter Weyrauch and Amy Oliver, both accomplished fine art photographers, whose lessons in photography dramatically accelerated and expanded his learning and understanding of the medium.

After lots of 1-4 AM walks in Hollywood Blvd, LA and a several weddings later, Ricardo today continues to capture images and shapes of people on the street — as they are either lost in their own world or interacting with others around the SF City.  A way to relate to others, or to highlight human slices of time that come and go, or both.
