In an exhibition particularly relevant to the Bay Area, Janet Delaney: South of Market relates the complex history of a changing San Francisco neighborhood through a selection of more than 40 photographs from the 1970s and 1980s. Janet Delaney (b. 1952), an internationally recognized photographer and educator based in Berkeley, photographed the people and places in the South of Market district during a period when redevelopment was threatening to transform it irreversibly.
