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.
