“Bokeh” is the aesthetic quality of the blur produced in the out-of- focus parts of an image produced by a lens. “Bokeh Bokeh” features works from all photographic genres – fine art, documentary, portraiture, street, … focuses (or blurs?) on work that is original, beautiful, startling.

How do we mark time? We all do it. Humans compulsively invent new ways to drop pins in the flow of time so that as much of life as possible takes root in our personal memories and collective consciousness. On the occasion of Bay Area Photographers Collective’s 20th anniversary, Marking Time honors the founders and celebrates the vibrancy and diversity of the current membership through recent works that highlight our relationships to each other, the built and natural world, and photography itself.

The Bay Area Photographers Collective is a community of photographers who nurture each other’s professional and artistic growth through through peer critiques, group exhibitions, workshops, and more. Members’ work ranges broadly from fine art to documentary, color to black-and-white, and traditional darkroom to advanced digital to alternative process methods. BAPC is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization established in 1999.
