193. Black Power – Flower Power

The Marin Community Foundation is hosting a very high quality photography exhibit through August 30th. It is a show of the works of two well known black and white photographers, Pirkle Jones and Ruth-Marion Baruch, who trained with both Ansel Adams and Edward Weston, and whose photographs have been exhibited around the country over many decades.

This exhibit features works from their collaboration in 1968 photographing the Black Panthers at their Bay Area headquarters for four months. These works were featured in a show on the Black Panthers at the de Young Museum in 1968, which drew over 100,000 people. Among them you’ll recognize some of the most iconic Black Panther photos.

It also includes photographs from Baruch’s project Haight-Ashbury, 1967, which is an amazing view back into the center of the 60’s social upheaval and cultural revolution.

Really amazing work – not to be missed!
