100 | 50 | 1: 100 portraits, 50 photographers, 1 camera

November 9–16 in San Francisco @ the nwblk


100-50-1 is a new photo exhibition, bringing together fifty of the world’s most talented mobile photographers to showcase portraits they’ve captured using their smartphones.

The rise of the smartphone as people’s main tool for photographic expression has created a new genre that previously existed solely on social networks. We are taking the photos off of the phone and placing them on gallery walls.

Money raised from the sale of the show catalog will be donated to 100cameras, a non-profit that empowers kids to create tangible change in their communities by teaching them to capture their lives through photography.

Venue | San Francisco

The New Black is a dynamic design environment promoting innovation in applied arts and culture, and hosting events for some of the most celebrated brands, artists, and individuals in the world.

Opening Night | November 8th, 18:30–22:30

If you’re one of the over 900 people (!) who already RSVP’d, we can’t wait to see you at the opening on November 8th! If you didn’t manage to RSVP before we sold out, we hope you’ll still come to the ONA Photo Walk on Saturday, and see the show another day.

We’re super excited to have food available for sale from Bicycle Bánh Mì and drinks sponsored by Snapwire throughout the evening.

ONA Photo Walk | November 9th, 15:30

To keep the energy going following opening night, we’d love you to join us on Saturday for a photo walk at Crissy Field ( view on Google Maps). Many of the exhibiting photographers will be in town for the show, so we thought we’d get everyone together and take some pictures!

As a bonus, the amazing people at ONA Bags will be giving away 5 of their super stylish Bowery Bags to the best portraits*.

We’ll meet near the warming hut at 15:30 and explore the surrounding area. RSVP on Facebook »

*Photos will be judged by the team at ONA Bags, and winners will be mailed their bag at a later date.
