Fred Lyon - San Francisco
The Gallery at Leica Store San Francisco, in collaboration with Peter Fetterman Gallery, is pleased to present the photography of San Francisco native Fred Lyon (b. 1924). Opening August 1, 2016 and running through October 21, 2016, the exhibition will feature some of Lyon’s most iconic images of classic San Francisco.
Fred Lyon, a fourth generation San Franciscan, has accomplished a lot over his seventy-year career with his trusty mechanical film cameras and he continues to explore the medium to this day.
The photographs in Lyon’s exhibition, consisting of more than forty-five vintage and modern prints, represent work developed during San Francisco’s post-war transformation. At the time, the city was thriving and full of optimism, and one feels this energy in Lyon’s sweeping compositions. His subjects range from children and their elders, to musicians and painters, fishermen and servicemen. (Source: The Gallery at Leica Store San Francisco, August 2016. Read more)
