Vladimir on Market StreetMany of us who have spent time on Market Street in San Francisco making photographs have run into a man known by one name, Vladimir.

Daniel Shipp - Botanical Inquiry, 2014-2015 Artist’s statement:“Botanical Inquiry is a series of photographic dioramas that shuffle nature, geography, and physics into familiar but fictional environments.
