Pier 24 Photography is pleased to present HERE., an exhibition of works produced by Bay Area photographers as well as a range of images of San Francisco, with an emphasis on the late-twentieth century. HERE. highlights the vibrancy of San Francisco and the surrounding areas through the work of 34 photographers and over 700 images.
The San Francisco Bay Area has inspired photographers since the early stages of the medium. From the rolling hills, breathtaking vistas and dynamism of local redwood forests to the linking bridges and bay itself, this area evokes wonder and curiosity. As subcultures developed alongside urban and suburban sprawl, photographers flocked to the Bay Area to capture the distinctive character of the region's people and land. From the drama of early landscape photographs by Carleton E. Watkins to intimate portraits of youth on the streets by Jim Goldberg and Richard Misrach, both beauty and tragedy have compelled photographers to document the Bay Area.
