The installation 24 HRS in Photos by Erik Kessels isn’t a typical photography installation.  An entire room at San Francisco’s Pier 24 Photography is filled with photographs.  One end of the room is piled to the ceiling with images cascading down to visitors’ feet.  The photographs at first appear to be innocuous: family photos, vacation photos, smart phone photos.  The immense number of photographs compiled by Kessels, though, are all of the images uploaded to the popular site Flickr in a single day.  Kessels’ installation serves as a clue to astronomical number of images uploaded to the internet constantly.  Even more striking is the way 24 HRS in Photos hints at the sheer saturation of images in day to day life.  Kessels’ installation is part of A Sense of Place, a photography group exhibit on view at Pier 24 Photography through May 2014.
