Few are neutral but I might have switched teams last weekend.A second set from the recent Italian Heritage Festival and Parade in San Francisco’s North Beach. What a celebration! See more photos in the previous post.The Italian Heritage Festival and Parade dates back to 1869 and was back this year, after being virtual in 2020. The 3-hour-plus parade featured Christopher Columbus, Queen Isabella and her Court, SF Mayor London Breed, vintage cars, parade floats, Armed Forces and school marching bands, and too many civic and multicultural groups to name. Spectators lined the parade route and spilled out of sidewalk eateries. Afterward, people mingled and scanned the skies for the Blue Angels’ Fleet Week Air Show, while blues music emanated from the reopened Saloon, the city’s oldest bar. It was a joyous parade and celebration, on a perfect October day in North Beach. Grazie Mille @sfitlheritage! More photos to come. 🇮🇹Orange October. 🧡🖤Trad’r Sam opened in 1937 and has the distinction of being the world’s oldest continually operating tiki bar.

I am thrilled that one of my photos was included in the exhibit ICPConcerned: Global Images for Global Crisis at the International Center of Photography (ICP) in New York. The show ran from Oct. 1, 2020, to Jan. 4, 2021, and featured photos from more than 65 countries, in response to events of this tumultuous time—a global pandemic, the Black Lives Matter and similar movements, the effects of climate change, the U.S. presidential elections and many more events that were felt and depicted in ways both epic and very personal.
My photo (above), “Golden Gate Market, 8:15 a.m. Sausalito, CA”, was taken on Sept. 9, 2020. That day, smoke from a series of wildfires on the U.S. West Coast gave the sky over the San Francisco Bay Area an apocalyptic orange glow for most of the day. I recorded some audio to give context to the photo.
The exhibit was organized and presented in much the way the photos from around the world were taken. Throughout the year, starting with the first shelter-at-home orders in March, the show grew to cover the gallery’s blank walls, which were denoted by month.
ICP describes “concerned photography” as “socially and politically minded images that can educate and change the world.” As a longtime fan of ICP and of this kind of photography, I was thrilled and honored to be part of the show. I was also very moved to participate in a presentation, during which ICP Director David Campany walked us through the exhibit, sharing the processes and all the images, which had the effect of making me feel more connected to and unified with the experiences of others whom I’ll never meet. Over the year, the exhibit grew to approximately 1,000 images. Future projects, such as a book, may be forthcoming.
See my gallery, Climate Change is Real, which includes the Sept. 9 photo.
