Arriving at Ocean Beach on mornings around 7 am, Tressa Pack would wait for people to emerge from the fog and into the plane of focus. Operating a bulky 8x10 camera required that she remain a fixed observer of whoever wandered onto the picture plane. While she chose the foggy beach for its formal qualities and sublime aspects, Pack's subjects were delivered to her purely by chance encounters. The result is a highly stylized composition of casual and mostly unaware persons. After receiving her MFA from Mills College in 2012, Pack was selected by Pro Arts Gallery for its Bay Area Currents exhibition. She received a Loop Arts Grant, which provided resources in preparation for a solo exhibition at Interface Gallery in San Francisco.
