Lewis Watts is an internationally exhibited documentary photographer, archivist, curator, and Professor Emeritus of Art at UC Santa Cruz and UC Berkeley. He focuses much of his art and research on the cultural landscape of the African Diaspora of the Bay Area and the nation.

In this exhibition, Watts catches the spirit and individuality of his subjects in photographs taken over five years in many regions of the United States and around the world.

Watts has co-authored books, including Harlem of the West: The San Francisco Fillmore Jazz Era (Heyday Books, 2020). A former Bolinas resident, he is affiliated with the Rena Bransten Gallery, San Francisco.

His photographs are in many collections, including the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Oakland Museum of California, and The Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C.
