Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
Linwood describes the suite: "black and white street photographs taken in the afternoons of 1990, mostly of San Francisco. These twelve images document moments of sun-drenched, and in San Francisco's case fog-reflected, afternoon light. Their ethnographic content and theatrical composition portrays city, monuments, reflections, and people enrapt in gritty commerces of gender, race, style and power within a collage of visual difference."
Elliott Linwood is a photographer and conceptual artist who is well known for his large-scale photo grids. He was born in Lowell, Massachusetts, on July 14, 1956; later he moved to New York City, and he is now based in San Diego, California. He received a B.A. from New York University in 1982, and an M.A. in art and education from San Francisco State University in 1993. He came out just before the AIDS crisis began.
12 black and white photographic prints (in 1 oversized flat box). Dimensions: 11-inches x 14-inches, matted to 16-inches x 20-inches.
