Rocky McCorkle

You and Me on a Sunny Day – Ltd. Edition Book

    Exhibition Catalog

This beautiful coffee-table book documents Rocky McCorkle’s incredible project, You and Me on a Sunny Day – A Non-Motion Picture, from the feature exhibition September 14 – October 26, 2019.

You and Me on a Sunny Day presents an innovative series of large-format photographs exploring the life, dreams, and memories of 88-year-old Gilda Todar, a neighbor of the artist in San Francisco. Photographer Rocky McCorkle created a narrative and conceived a silent film featuring Ms. Todar in a sequence of built environments within his Tenderloin apartment.

The high-resolution detail in the prints are a result of a painstaking process of focus, stacking up to 22 individual 8×10-inch film negatives for each final plate, using digital technology to create a fantastically seamless montage. The outcome of this extensive project is a thoughtful and emotional telling of Gilda’s life story within an exhibit that transcends traditional photography into a dimensional experience.
