Deborah Bell Photographs presents Elaine Mayes: Haight-Ashbury Portraits 1967-1968, an exhibition of vintage prints of portraits the photographer made in the now-legendary San Francisco neighborhood called Haight-Ashbury. Celebrating the recent publication by Damiani of the book by FotoFocus Artistic Director and Curator Kevin Moore, Elaine Mayes: Haight Ashbury Portraits 1967-1968, the exhibition opens November 17 and will be on view through March 4, 2023. A reception and book signing with the
artist, in cooperation with FotoFocus and Damiani, will take place in the gallery on Thursday, November 17, from 6-8pm.
This is the first monograph of Elaine Mayes's Haight-Ashbury portraits, published more than 50 years after the
photographs were taken.
