Artist Jonah Ward at 12 Gallagher Lane | Damion Hamilton | San Francisco Special Event Photographer

A tree with a hornet’s nest hanging from it is quite an unusual sight in the middle of an art gallery, unless you’re Jonah Ward.  In his third installment at 12 Gallagher Lane, he “explores the deconstructing and layering of the Madrone tree and bald-faced hornet, Dolichovespula, nests.” According to Jonah’s website, he “hand collects materials for these works, which include leaves and bark from the madrone tree, as well as, paper from the bald-faced hornet nests that fall from the trees in late September.” It’s incredible to see how the raw materials can be transformed into an entirely new work of art, and the intricate compilation of approximately 3,000 pieces of the wasps’ nest creates quite a stunning visual pattern. Also, please visit his website to learn more about his unique techniques combining glass and wood. Thank you Jonah for allowing to play a small part in the opening of your newest exhibition!

Jean Paul Gaultier at the de Young Museum | Damion Hamilton | Detail and Decor Photographer

You’ve never seen the de Young like this…walls marked up with graffiti, an indoor pier complete with paparazzi’s flashing lights, and mannequins that speak and blink?? Those were some of the spectacular ideas that you would have experienced at the opening of

The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk.

The clothing display on the life like mannequins seems to be one of the biggest hits as I am still hearing people exclaiming over it months later! Incredible technology and imagination inspired the creators to carve the faces of the mannequins to reflect the exact dimensions of the models who were recorded on video.  Video projection was then used to create the “face” of the mannequins, which were incredibly lifelike as they talked, blinked, and made facial expressions, including one very special model…a young Gaultier as himself.  Don’t miss this exhibition that ends in a few days on August 19th, 2012.  *This exhibition contains adult themes*

 

Thanks for Blueprint Studios and Got Light? for creating such an amazing event!

 

Gita & Mark’s Cornerstone Gardens Wedding | Damion Hamilton | Napa Sonoma Wedding Photographer

Cornerstone Gardens in Sonoma provided the perfect backdrop to celebrate this creative San Francisco couple in style!  Gita and Mark purposely chose Cornerstone because of it’s unique and interesting art installations, textures, and features.  Gita, an industrial designer, created the playful paper suite (with Russian on the reverse side) that gave friends and family an inkling of the fun,yet sophisticated vibe of this wedding.  Coordinator and designer Mandy Scott did an excellent job of bringing in the pops of color that Gita had in mind, yet the florals were soft and romantic.

Gita was absolutely breathtaking in her fawn colored Rivini Honorine gown with french lace and Mark was equally as stylish with his beautiful Isaia suit.  I could just keep talking, but instead, I’ll let you get to the gorgeous images that capture the light-heartedness and romance of their day so well! Gita and Mark, thank you so much for letting us be a part of your day.  You guys are so much fun to be around and seeing the way you guys love each other made your celebration even more special.  Congratulations and job well done!!
