MARCH 3-APRIL 2


ROBIN TWOMEY PRESENTS: MEDICINE


In her first exhibition at Patricia Sweetow Gallery. Robyn will present Medicine, portraits of medical marijuana clients living in California.


In the fall of 2009, Robyn was on assignment with Fortune Magazine covering the me- dicinal marijuana movement in California. While photo-


graphing behind the scenes at the dispensaries, she met 19 year-old Jordan Mays, a medical marijuana client who has a rare form of leukemia. Though not originally part of the assignment, the photo editor of Fortune Magazine encouraged Robyn to ac- company Jordan to his house and photograph him. Thus began the journey for Robyn into the personal stories of Medical Marijuana prescrip- tion patients from Harborside Healthcare in Oakland, CA. Robyn has photographed


over 30 clients, with an ar- ray of stories; the large-scale portraits are staged in the cli- ent's environment while each administers their medication.


The photographs give voice to the diversity of those who rely on cannabis for relief, despite the frail legal framework, and the menacing social stigma.


Robyn Twomey's photographs have been included in exhibi- tions at the San Francisco Arts Commission, San Franc- sico Camerawork, and the Luggage Store Gallery, San Francisco. Her freelance pho- tography assignments have taken her world wide, with projects appearing in Time,


Fortune, Wired and New York Magazine.


Opening night is Thursday March 3rd from 5:30 to 7:30 pm. The show will run through April 2. The gallery is at 77 Geary Street, San Francisco CA. Gallery hours: Tuesday through Saturday 10:30 - 5:30 pm. For more information, go to http:// robyntwomey.createsend5. com/t/y/l/fjddul/pdrkulljr/y" \t "_blank" www.patriciaswee- towgallery.com
