After the Ruins, 1906 and 2006: Rephotographing the San Francisco Earthquake and Fire

Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, Mark Klett

Over the past two years, Arizona-based photographer Mark Klett has assembled 1906 photographs from the Legion of Honor's Genthe archive, the Bancroft Library, and various web-based archives, resulting in the identification of 85 geographical sites.

His fieldwork in recreating the historic shots covered the entire city of San Francisco, from Union Square to the Presidio, South of Market to the Marina Green, and Mission Dolores to Cow Hollow.

This exhibition features over 50 of Klett's paired photographs depicting the city then and now, each showing that the two spaces and times are related.
