Cotton Picker; Ten Years, Robbery and Assault

Scott Nichols is currently holding a very special exhibition featuring the work of Danny Lyon’s, “Conversations with the Dead.”

In the 1960’s, photographer Danny Lyon explored the penitentiary system in Texas. Over the course of Lyon’s time exploring the penal system, he ingratiated himself within the culture and befriended more than one individual.

At the time of his project, Lyon had already made a name for himself as a Magnum photographer and the creator of what was dubbed “New Journalism”- spending months with only a small number of subject to create detailed extensive photo-documentaries. Previous projects included a long-term project covering the Outlaws, a notorious biker gang. 

The extensive work involved in the project is powerful to say the least. For those interested in viewing Conversations with the Dead at Scott Nichols gallery, the exhibition will be available until March 18th.

For years, Scott Nichols Gallery has been one of the foremost purveyors of Black and White photography in San Francisco. Drawing on their particular love of the American landscape, the SNG’s Little Gallery is featuring the works of Ansel Adams and William Garnett, the latter of whom is being posthumously celebrated for his 100th birthday; Garnett passed away in 2006.

The pair is an appropriate juxtaposition due to their focus in photography and general love of the environment. Adams has long been celebrated as a pioneer in photographing the American West. Born in 1902 , Adams was one of the founders of Group f/64 with Willard Van Dyke and Edward Weston.

As a long time collector of Group f/64, Scott Nichols Gallery will be pulling together a wide assortment of Adams photographs that are part of its collection.

Garnett, born in 1916 in Chicago, Illinois, made his name initially as an independent graphic designer and commercial photographer. What he’s best known for however is it work on the American landscape, like Adams. But unlike Adams, who focused especially on forestry, Garnett’s work was aerial. Over the years, his works were published in magazines such as Fortune, Life and Reader’s Digest.

The Exhibition will be open to visitors until February 25th, 2017.

Scott Nichols latest gallery, starring the works of Wynn Bullock and Morley Baer, was supposed to finish at the end of October. But the gallery is pleased to inform the public that it will be extending the exhibit through November 12th.

The Scott Nichols Gallery is a fine art photography gallery located in downtown San Francisco. The gallery shows a combination of established, up and coming and contemporary photographers.

Scott Nichols, a Southern California native, has been a private dealer since 1980. He is considered one of the experts on Group f/64 and Brett Weston. The gallery opened in 1992 and houses one of the largest private collections of Brett Weston photographs as well as an extensive inventory of photographs by classic California photographers such as Ansel Adams, Edward Weston, Dorothea Lange, Imogen Cunningham, Ruth Bernhard, Wynn Bullock, and William Garnett.

Though the gallery is located in the upscale gallery district of the Union Square area, Scott Nichols has a very casual and friendly style. This is not the typical white walled gallery affair.

After the current exhibit comes to a close, Nichols will be wasting no time with bringing another up for availability. Conversations with the Dead & the Bikeriders, works by Danny Lyon, will open November 15th. Stay tuned for more information regarding the future exhibit.
