OpenSFHistory Photography Forum WNP Event

Mar 28, 2024 6:30pm-7:30pm (Thursday)

Join Western Neighborhoods Project (WNP) for a special conversation via Zoom between two Richmond District photographers, Dave Glass and Yameen, on Thursday, March 28, 2024 at 6:30pm.

As WNP’s OpenSFHistory program celebrates 10 years in 2024, we’re hosting informal conversations about photography. The program was launched in November 2014 to make an anonymous private collection accessible to the public, and has since grown to host images from other private collectors and organizations without the means to digitize and make their collections available online. As our database grew with uploads of amateur snapshots and professional photography, an intimate portrait of what it means to live in San Francisco has emerged.

How does our historical archive connect to photography happening now? How and why do we take photographs? Why do they matter? We’ll dive into these questions and more with rotating guests.

Please register using Eventbrite. This one-hour Zoom program is online only and will include time for Q&A. This event is free but donations are appreciated. Please RSVP to receive the super-secret Zoom link.
