             Introducing photographer Jim Stewart . . .

                         Men South of Market

             Jim Stewart of Keyhole Studio in San Francisco has recently hung One-
             Man Shows at the Ambush bar, and currently is hanging on the walls of
             the Catacombs. His photographs of Christo’s “Running Fence” will open
             in the fall at the Galeria Vandres in Madrid.
                His work will be on public display at his studio at 768-A Clementina
             as part of the South of Market Open Studio.
                Jim lives in the South of Market area and does much of his photogra-
             phy in that neighborhood, and at various locations ranging from Mount
             Tam to the Slot Hotel. On one side of our new centerfold are a few shots
             from his show “Men South of Market.” Jim promises heavier examples for
             future spreads to follow this jock issue.
                When not behind his Nikon, Jim does construction and carpentry
             work around San Francisco. His Keyhole Studios also makes prints of his
             exciting work available by mail.
