Upper Playground and the FIFTY24SF Gallery will play host to an upcoming “Show Me Your Heart” Exhibition. The event will being April 5th and conclude April 29th. The exhibit is a foil of two influential photographers in the USA’s Estevan Oriol and Japan’s Yasumasa “Yone” Yonehara. In similar fashion to art show’s of the last little while, a strong basis lies in the ability to create and enhance dissimilarities due to the societal and geographical differences brought forth by each photographer.
Estevan Oriol entered the entertainment industry in an unconventional manner back in the late 80’s as a bouncer at various big Los Angeles hip hop clubs and hotspots for the people of Hollywood. However, his decision to start playing around with photography in 1995 gave him a great opportunity to capture and express to the world the raw essence of street culture. Not before long, his interest in photography yielded him the opportunity to showcase his works in leading magazines such as The Source, Details, Vibe, The Fader and Rolling Stone. As well a by-product of his success resulted in the creation of the creative agency SA Studios with famed tatoo artist Mister Cartoon. Estevan Oriol has also directed various music videos for artists such as Cypress Hill, D12, Linkin Park and Blink 182 as well as feature films.
Yasumasa “Yone” Yonehara is the creator of EGG magazine in Japan, a photo periodical that deals with the Ganguro fashion trend. As well, Yonehara’s success with semi-erotic Poloaroid pictures has resulted in projects with American Apparel and magazines such as Dazed & Confused, Warp and Vice. To top it off, Yonehara is also the author of numerous books.
