The Great Highway Gallery is pleased to present West San Francisco, an exhibition by Daniel McElmury. Please join us on Friday, November 15th, from 7p.m to 11 p.m., for the opening reception and meet with the artist.
Camouflaged by foggy skies, sandy winds and frigid waters, the Outer Sunset District of San Francisco has shown tremendous patience fo my art and me. My 15-year love/hate relationship with photography has kept me cross-eyed to the clandestine beauty that is my own backyard. Now, as the dust in my life settles, I’m thrilled and a bit peeved to realize that what drives my passion for photography has been in front of me all of this time. The still calm within my images is the subtle reflection of a beach dwellers state of mind and evidence of life out here on the edge of the earth. I capture the essence of West San Francisco to remind locals what they already have and show outsiders what they are missing.
About the Artist
Daniel graduated from the Academy of Art University in 2004. He lives in the Outer Sunset and has devoted himself to the art of photography. He experiments with various film and digital cameras to feed his appetite for creativity and inspiration. Pairing with the Great Highway Gallery has been a key factor in his motivation to create a body of work essential to the history of the Western Neighborhoods of San Francisco.
About the Gallery

Found this wandering around 47th, 48th Ave and Lawton-ish. My grandpa had a truck like this in brown and we would cruise the streets of Linda Vista in San Diego. He had a CB radio with a speaker and we would yell out to people walking on the street. I love this shot so much because it brings back the memories I have of my grandfather. – Danny
