Alan George is a San Francisco-based photographer who came to photography not through the halls of higher learning or by becoming enamored with photography as a child or as an artist in another medium who discovers photography as their "true” medium but rather, as someone who used a camera in much the same way as most people do, to record life's events . . . in other words, he was a snap-shooter.
In 2003 photography became a more central part of Alan"s
life, a way of exploring the social landscape. The process of searching, selecting and examining
something that would otherwise go unnoticed helped him to feel more conscious,
more aware, more engaged, more alive.
