Storied: San Francisco

Oct 24, 2017

Photographer Bhautik Joshi has seen a lot. He's originally from Sydney, Australia, moved to England as a young kid, and ended up in San Francisco with his wife about 10 years ago. He's always been interested in visual storytelling, and his Flickr page and Instagram account attest to that.

Here he is in his own words:

"Bhautik is a photo dork who lives in San Francisco. He focuses on capturing vignettes of the city's flavor in his street photography, and is involved with arts advocacy by organizing talks, photo-walks, and meetups. In his day job, Bhautik is a research engineer at Adobe, continuing 10 years of work in facilitating artistic discovery by building tools in where technology and art meet."

For Part 1 of his Storied: San Francisco episode, Bhautik told me about the time he took the bus over to Treasure Island, set up a time-lapse camera to capture a major bit of construction on the Bay Bridge, and then ... well, you'll have to listen to find out what happened next.

For a look at some other photos he got of the bridge work, check out this Flickr album.

Bhautik will be screening an experimental film: 2001: A Picasso Odyssey at the Another Hole in the Head event at SF Indiefest. That will take place at 7 p.m. on November 7. For more details, go here.

Bhautik had so many stories to share when we recorded in the back room at Pig and Whistle in San Francisco. We talked for nearly two hours. Check back later this week for another great story Bhautik shared with me.
