2015/07/16 MHG and PEG visit to the de Young Museum in San Francisco to view the Janet Delaney: South of Market exhibit (catalogue). January 17, 2015 – July 19, 2015.
From the de Young’s web site description of the catalogue: “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.”
