The Art of Fire

Fighting the Beast: Photographs of San Francisco Firefighters at Work

“The Art of Fire” comprises photographs of San Francisco Fire Department’s firefighters engaged in fighting the beast that is fire. This collaborative exhibition features work from photographers who’ve captured striking images that put the viewer on the firehose alongside firefighters in the fight to save lives and property.

Supported and sponsored by: San Francisco Firefighters Cancer Prevention Foundation, S.F. Firefighters Local 798, San Francisco Chronicle and S.F. Recreation & Parks. Since its inception in 2006, the S.F. Firefighters Cancer Prevention Foundation has been dedicated to the fight against cancer in both active and retired members of the S.F. Fire Department.

In 2017, these “Art of Fire” images will also be featured in the inaugural gala for the San Francisco Firefighters Cancer Prevention Foundation on Saturday, March 4, 2017, at the Terra Gallery, 511 Harrison St., San Francisco. For more information go to the San Francisco Firefighters Cancer Prevention Foundation website at
