About Brad Evans

In a recent visit to the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Brad Evans, 52, noticed an odd juxtaposition of light and angles and took his best shot.

He thought the woman above him looked rather remarkable, and so took a straight photograph with his Sony digital camera. The impression is of a woman standing up, pressed against the glass, but in reality it's a bug's eye view of the woman lying across the catwalk that intersects the skylight.

Evans, a systems engineer from Woodside, was inspired about four years ago by other street photographers, especially Daido Moriyama and others of his milieu.
