The Photographs of FRED LYON: SAN FRANCISCO THEN

Saturday, September 18, 2010 - 2:00pm

Fred Lyon, a San Francisco native with nearly 70 years as a photographer under his belt, has put together a fascinating picture of our dear city by the bay with his newest collection, San Francisco Then. The prints therein came from a box of old negatives that he found in a filing cabinet from his early years experimenting with photography in the 1940s and 50s-- photographs that had been just gathering dust until now. Newly printed and displayed together for the first time, they offer a candid and raw rendering of San Francisco, pieced together by an artist who loves (and can tell) a good story through words and images alike. This opportunity to meet the man behind the lens and hear his take on San Francisco Then is truly one not to miss.
