Outside Looking In

June 22, 2009


Were coming up on the last week to see Ilke Hartmann‘s show Outside Looking In. Ilke is a Bay Area photographer who has captured some amazing historical moments. She was kind enough to allow me to borrow her images of the 1969 Native Occupation of Alcatraz for the Signs of Change exhibition.

“It is now almost 40 years since these photographs were taken. Waves of immigrants from many different countries have arrived since. We are living in a microcosm of the world, making our own communities here and keeping ties to our original countries.
I hope that these pictures will contribute to the memory of the Chinese people who came to the San Francisco Bay Area and made a life here, often under the most difficult conditions, a life of dignity and strength.” -Ilka Hartmann
