Title: San Francisco 1964
San Francisco 1964
by Arthur Tress presents for the first time a collection of pictures
the photographer took in 1964 as a young man newly arrived in San
Francisco. That summer the city was ground zero for a historic culture
clash as the site of both the 28th Republican National Convention and
the launch of the Beatles' first North American tour.
The resulting photographs reveal a theme familiar to Tress’s many fans:
the intersection of the absurd and the mundane. Formally posed
portraits on the streets of San Francisco as well as candid views of
shop windows, signs, and other idiosyncrasies of the local landscape
capture the vibrant scene in the Bay Area at the dawn of a chaotic era.
