Anton Bulyonov was born in Cherepovets, Russia, in 1986. He studied Software Engineering at Cherepovets State University, graduating in 2008, and then pursued his studies at Saint Petersburg State University of Information Technologies, Mechanics and Optics. In 2013, he moved to San Francisco, where he currently works as a Software Engineer.
From 2010 to 2012, Anton Bulyonov took a variety of photography courses in Saint Petersburg at “Petersburg Photo Studios” and “Photofaculty”. He has participated in a number of group exhibitions in both Saint Petersburg and San Francisco, and has held three solo exhibitions, “Metal Fatigue”, at RabFak Gallery in Saint Petersburg, “Good Night”, at Calumet Photographic in San Francisco, and “Chimeres”, at Mind’s Eye Gallery in Paris. His photographs were featured in several online and offline magazines.
Marsha’s passion for photography comes from her love for art and art history. Her work allows her the privilege of interacting with a variety of people, spending time in nature and working in the under-served community. Marshavalues the memories and documentation that pictures produce. She pursues this through street photography, portraiture and landscapes. When photographing people, dignity is her guide. With landscapes, the light and shapes of the natural world enhance her creativity.
Living in San Francisco offers opportunities for a variety of projects and provides Marsha with a rich palette to create pictures that narrate, observe and comment; all of it is work that is personally satisfying.
Marsha will talk about her photographic experience in the nonprofit arena, particularly her three-year effort photographing 28 woman at the Homeless Prenatal Program in San Fancisco. The lecture will review the day-to-day work that resulted in a successful show and a book.
