The first camera that Rey Cayetano bought was a 21st birthday gift for a friend who was hit by a car and died before he could deliver it to her. Six years later that tribute comes to life in “Side Walks,” a group show opening with a free event next Thursday at the San Francisco Museum at the Mint. The show, in the old weigh room of the Mint, is adjacent to “Neighbors,” a solo exhibition of enormous formal portraits by Troy Holden. If I could come from a tragedy and produce art, I felt that people should have access to that. Sam Whiting is a San Francisco Chronicle staff writer.
Man, lucky and blessed to be part of a dope photography show at the Old Mint with colleagues that inspire me!
