“Project 24” Shows an Unexpected Side of San Francisco
Local photographers take on a timely challenge
If you’re looking for a way to cap off your summer and get a head start on the city’s jam-packed fall arts season, we’ve got a show for you.
The concept behind Project 24 San Francisco at the Dryansky Gallery (through September 10) is simple: 24 gorgeous black-and-white photos, shot by 24 local photographers over a 24-hour period.
Each photographer was assigned a neighborhood at random and had one designated hour to shoot one roll of film. They got to decide what, why and how to shoot, as long as the images weren’t staged, digitally altered, cropped or otherwise doctored.
What they captured is a raw and unadulterated take on San Francisco’s neighborhoods. Here’s a preview of the striking imagery you can expect to see.
