Synopsis: 1978-1986. 79 colour photographs by Janet Delaney. Texts by Janet Delaney and Erin O'Toole. Interviews conducted by Janet Delaney and Laura Graham . 8vo (cm 24x28,5) pp. 128 Rilegato tela (cloth) Perfetto (Mint) Nel 1978 Janet Delaney si trasferisce nel quartiere di South of Market a San Francisco perché la posizione era centrale e l'affitto a buon mercato. Durante i fine settimana comincia a fotografare, con la sua macchina fotografica di grande formato, il cantiere di quello che oggi è il Moscone Convention Centre. Dopo aver assistito alla demolizione notturna di un albergo residenziale adiacente, Delaney decide di registrare gli effetti che il rinnovamento urbano ha su residenti poveri, immigrati e working class. Delaney si unisce quindi agli sforzi e alle proteste degli abitanti del luogo contro il trattamento che la città stava loro riservando e comincia a fotografare e intervistare i suoi vicini nelle loro case e nei luoghi di lavoro. South of Market non è una rappresentazione romantica del passato della città, ma piuttosto la testimonianza di una comunità scomparsa formata da operai, proprietari di piccole imprese, famiglie con bambini, artisti e gay. Il lavoro è particolarmente rilevante oggi che una nuova fase di gentrification sta ancora una volta spingendo i residenti meno abbienti fuori da San Francisco.

Book Description Mack, 2013. Hardcover. Condition: New. First Edition, First Printing. SIGNED COPY Mack, 2013. Hardcover in pictorial boards. First Edition, First Printing. 11" x 9". 128 pages with numerous photographic images throughout in color by Janet Delaney. An essay by Erin O’Toole sets the context for this story by providing a history of this constantly evolving San Francisco neighborhood. SIGNED by Janet Delaney. Book Condition: Fine solid, clean copy . SIGNED From the publisher: "Crime is something that happens between winos and gays and Latino youths. It isn’t thought to be something that happens when speculators exploit a political situation and just move in and displace 5,000 people over ten years. That’s not crime, that’s business. Which makes headlines and which makes profits? Jim Pomeroy, artist and Langton Street resident South of Market is a photographic portrait of a San Francisco neighbourhood in the throes of urban renewal. In 1978, Janet Delaney moved to San Francisco’s South of Market district because the location was central and the rent was cheap. On the weekends she photographed with her large format camera at the nearby construction site for what is now the Moscone Convention Centre. After witnessing the nighttime demolition of an adjacent residential hotel, Delaney became interested in the rippling economic effects urban renewal was having on poor and working class residents. Leaving the construction site behind, Delaney joined local efforts to protest the city’s treatment of the community and began to photograph and interview her neighbors in their homes and places of work. South of Market 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." The photographs are accompanied by interviews which offer personal responses to the impact of gentrification on twelve of Delaney’s neighbors. Seller Inventory # 241
