"In some of the most highly photographed areas of the city Shawn Whisenant sets himself apart from the camera-toting masses, capturing images with an intimacy and humor truly born of his environment and community. Traversing downtown San Francisco with Whisenant it is difficult to get far without encountering one of his regular portrait subjects- Slim, Spaceman, Camera girl- or without discovering a scene that falls into one of his visual databases. The repetitive subjects and compositional features of Whisenant’s photography make for a visual standard of city life, a catalog of factors against which his more spectacular imagery shines as bright as those moments do in real life, in the midst of monotony and ugliness. Whisenant’s constant exploration of the urban space frames the city as it is; as familiar and unknown, as playground and as place of confinement, and as lovely as it is hard."
