Janet Delaney: South of Market

This product is sold out.


FAMSF Publications

South of Market is a photographic portrait of a San Francisco neighborhood in the throes of urban renewal. It is not a romantic representation of San Francisco's past, but rather a testament to a vanished community made up of blue-collar workers, small business owners, families with children, artists, and gay men. The work is especially relevant today, as a new wave of gentrification brought on by the second internet boom is again driving less affluent residents out of San Francisco. ''As I continue to photograph in San Francisco and in urban areas around the world,''says Delaney, ''I see that who plays and who pays remains, as it always was, the central issue.''This is a new edition, published by the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco for Janet Delaney: South of Market at the de Young. The new text includes a new director's foreword, a new statement by Janet Delaney, and several recent photographic works which contrast the present development and gentrification in San Francisco with the South of Market images. Contains full color reproductions of every work in the exhibition. Softcover, 104 pages
