Exhibit Description:

This exhibit is the result of a collaboration between the University of San Francisco’s Urban Studies Program and the Harvey Milk Photo Center.

Photographers in the exhibit were part of Photo Praxis and the City,  a class taught by Professor Pedro Lange-Churión. Their effort yielded a collection of photographs on the city that includes a variety of themes: sand dunes in San Francisco, an omnipresent natural element despite the city’s changes; abstracted textures of San Francisco’s architecture; San Francisco’s landmarks rendered uncanny by movement; empty spaces in the urban fabric; the creative ways people with disabilities interact with the city; ruins that reveal the city’s past; old city signs that have defied the onslaught of gentrification, among other themes.

Central to Eyes on the City is the work in analog photography and darkroom printing students have produced after taking a workshop with photographers Chris Gould and Jason Andrescavage.  Without disqualifying the merits of digital photography, this experience sought to reconnect these young photographers with a more meditative and deliberate way of seeing.
