San Francisco opening this Thursday: Carte Blanche gallery & bookstore
Gallery Carte Blanche is an online gallery project I helped owner/curator Gwen Lafage design and build.
Gwen has connected with the most interesting photographers from Japan, Italy, Congo, China, Spain. She uses the best printers in the Bay Area to make high-quality prints that remain affordable. For anyone interested in photography, the gallery site should be an interesting browse, the photos look good, with interviews and background info for every photographer.
Beyond the online store, Gwen has recently opened a gallery in San Francisco. Carte Blanche is also a bookstore, already one of the best places to buy photo books in San Francisco. Gwen has sourced those interesting books you have seen online, but have never been able to flip through yourself.
I’ll be at the opening, from 7pm-ish, it would be cool to meet some sf tumblr people there!
When: Thursday, December 15, 6-9pm
Where: 973 Valencia St. (near 21st Street)
