Tom Ferentz photographs
out of his own diverse interests and on assignment. He has exhibited
at NINE Gallery in Portland, Or; Meridian Gallery in San Francisco;
Nickel Museum in Calgary, Canada; Sunny Gate Gallery in Taipei,
Taiwan; Oranges/Sardines in Los Angeles, and was a Eureka Fellow
Sometimes he reworks something out of photography’s past,
like Walker Evans’ Havana 1933. He
thinks of photography as being engaged in a long-term dialogue with
itself and wants to participate. Other times find him directing
his camera toward his own past. Central
Street, a recent work, is a reverie about a place from his past
which he explored with both his camera and memory.
Ferentz’ photographs of health
care have appeared in exhibition catalogs, books, magazines,
and publications. His clients include publishers JB Lippincott,
Addison-Wesley, and Nurseweek magazine.
Tom Ferentz is Founder and Artistic Director of Sixth
Street Photography Workshop, a project in the low-income and
homeless community in San Francisco. He teaches photography at University
of San Francisco.
