About 
Dick Evans

Dick Evans is a San Francisco–based photographer with an interest in documenting the colorful and rapidly changing neighborhoods of the city. Born into a ranching family in Eugene, Oregon, he graduated as an engineer from Oregon State University and subsequently obtained a master’s in management from Stanford.

 

He has spent his fifty-year career in the global metals sector, living in five countries and multiple locations in Africa, Europe, and North America. It was during these travels that he developed an appreciation for the diversity and richness of different cultures—both global and local—and an interest in documentary photography.

Following his OSU graduation Dick’s career has spanned over 50 years in the global metals industry, culminating as CEO of Montreal, Quebec based Alcan - operating in 63 countries and employing 85,000 worldwide. He has also served on the boards of directors of seven NYSE companies and chaired several international trade and policy associations – including the Davos World Economic Forum  Board  of  Governors  for

mining and the London-based International Aluminum Institute. He is currently the Chairman of Paris-based Constellium, a leading materials and solutions provider to the aerospace, automotive and packaging industries. 

Dick’s photographic style is to focus on authentic images of people, architecture, landscapes and cultural activities, which exhibit symbolic as well as immediate meaning.  For example, his award-winning book on the Mission District of San Francisco emphasizes the Latino population - and how their iconic muralism defines their neighborhood. His latest book Chinatown celebrates the color and resilient history of the United States' oldest Chinatown. Dick has over 100,000 images in his archives from the last two decades, since digital image storage became practical. This exhibition for the Little Gallery features a tiny sample of these images: from the Chinese Opera in San Francisco to a truck driver in remote Siberia – with shots from Turkey, Russia, Oman, India, Spain, Mexico and Morocco in between.
