Friday night, 17 January 2014, Troy Holden’s “Neighbors” opened at the Lower Branch Gallery on Eddy Street. If you’re looking for sentimental or sensationalist images, go somewhere else. Shot entirely in the central city area, the large-format color prints in “Neighbors” are compassionate, unflinching portraits of people in their personal environments. Given that the central city is the neighborhood people love to hate, this show is bound to be an eye-opener for many, revealing directly and undeniably just how much each of us has in common. Do yourself a favor and see this show at 233 Eddy before it closes.
Everyone is cordially invited to an informal opening and reception for the installation of a permanent collection of my early photography at the Arlington Hotel, 480 Ellis Street, San Francisco on Thursday, 29 August 2013 at 10:30am.

Cutting Ball Theater, in the heart of the Tenderloin, is turning its neighborhood into a work of theatrical art.
