If you can make it to Dogpatch Monday through Friday, there is a show of Jessamyn Lovell's photographs that is worth seeking out. On view are a few large prints and dozens of smaller ones — images of her upstate New York family. You won't see this family in ads. The father is long gone, the mother has multiple sclerosis, the women are overweight, and the adopted Korean son was scarred by fire. There is a voyeur element to the photos, but they are family photos in the end. Many young photographers document their lives, but Lovell has captured something specific that she owns. The venue is In Color 2, a photographic printing shop, located at 2475 Third St. (near 22nd St.), San Francisco. The shop is upstairs in Suite 251. The hours are 9:00 am to 6:00 pm, but they may close between 1:00 and 2:00 pm for lunch. The phone is (415) 861-3997.
