Overview:

David Garnick’s series of photographs, Thirty-Six Views of the Bay Bridge, is inspired by a long tradition of artists who work in series to investigate a subject from multiple vantage points. In the 1830’s Japanese artist Katsushika Hokusai published Thirty-Six Views of Mount Fuji, (a series of woodblock prints which includes the famous The Great Wave off Kanagawa, the first and best-known in the series). Garnick’s work carries on this tradition, with the Bay Bridge as his muse. The bridge is a constant visual anchor to life around it in his photographs, the iconic form sometimes dominating the landscape, at other times barely visible. Garnick’s technique for producing his series is digital, but his treatment of colors evokes the look of The Detroit Publishing Company’s photochrom postcards from the early 1900’s which grew out of the rich tradition of block printing. davidgarnick.photography
