Like every year, this important San Francisco gallery organized a group exhibition by bringing out a selection of famous photographs from its collection. This year, Summer Show displayed no less than 80 photographs by major artists like Paul Strand, Cartier Bresson, Lartigue, Walker Evans and Keith Carter, to name a few. From this collection dating back to 1863, we appreciate in particular the many black and white photographs. Architectural shots, landscapes, street scenes, portrait: there’s something here for everyone. In this season of music festivals, Bob Gruen’s famous portrait of John Lennon is a welcome sight, as is Michael Zagaris’s portrait of Jimmy Page. For lovers of sunbathed bodies, check out Mona Kuhn’s nudes.
