Photography // Thursday, March 26, 2015
Chris’s time in New York City was spent in borderless space. I’m not speaking here in terms of NYC being a hub for global culture and commerce, although it is surely borderless in this respect, too. Rather, his stint in New York City was time spent organizing form, light, meanings, objects, enduring histories and fleeting moments. All of which, more often than not, seemed to present themselves as if melded together without any division between these concepts, without clear distinction between “this” and “that.”

The dynamics of cities is measurable and personal, and Janet Delaney’s South of Market, currently on view at San Francisco’s de Young Museum, documents her firsthand experience as a resident and keen-eyed photographer during the 1970s and ’80s
