WITH PASSION AND PURPOSE,PHOTOGRAPHS BY RICK ROCAMORA
Category: exhibit
The images by San Francisco-based photographer Rick Rocamora focus on the “people he wants us to look at an think about.” Selected black and white photographs represent the various series Rocamora has been pursuing since taking on a career as a documentary photographer in the 1980s. These include the series America’s Second-Class Veterans that captured the plight of the Filipino war veterans. In his regular visits to the Philippines, Rocamora explored themes focusing on the homeless, informal settlers, the maternity ward and the Japayukis. At times, personal bonds are established with his subjects. He is able to capture images that are poignant but not necessarily hopeless conditions.
