As a young man, Steven Brock spent a year living in a remote village in the Andes of Peru. Through his artistic eye and familiarity with the local people he captured the character and universal humanity of his subjects. Years later, Brock moved with his family to Inverness in coastal Marin. His experience in Peru led to his involvement in Gallery Route One’s Latino Photography Project in Point Reyes Station. He helped teach Latino members of the community the essence of photography and gave them techniques to employ with provided cameras. The vitality and success of this project continues today.
Brock’s photography include images from many nations, using both black and white and color. In his studio in the Mission district of San Francisco he creates hand-made photography books using skills learned from a year of study with a master bookbinder in Florence, Italy.
