Dual Views: Labor Landmarks of San Francisco

Reds Java, Sailors Union, Copra Crane, view from Sailors Union
Drawing on the research, archival photos, and maps collected in the SFSU Labor Archive's upcoming Labor Landmarks book,and their own visits to these sites of historical importance to the San Francisco labor movement, Crittenden (color) and Griscom (b&w) have created intriguing contemporary views of those sites in their contrasting yet complimentary styles. Photography is completed, we are assembling a package to find a home in the bay area for this show. We plan a gallery exhibition coupling this series of large scale photographic works with related historical information and period photos. There is a pdf of our proposal on my archive page.
