Community Stories, Adopted Cultures
November 20- December 14, 2000
Through the camera lens, Magnus gives us insights into the complex web of relations and personalities existing in various groups and communities in California and Hawaii. A nomadic photographer from the Valley on a quest for community in California, his images are a behind-the-scenes look at diverse communities at moments when their hair comes down and they kick back together in celebration of their group identity.
Magnus is a nationally exhibited photographer born in Modesto, Ca. He is the Founder and Director of Leonard’s Artspace, Inc., and the Director of Leonard’s Productions, where he has been producing Art Television, a series on cable TV for the last 13 years. A graduate of the San Francisco Art Institute he has exhibited in Chicago, New York, San Francisco, Holland and Hawaii, where he currently resides.
