Overview

In the aftermath of the 1906 earthquake and fire, many photographers - both amateur and professional - took to the streets and documented the unimaginable damage. Keller presents an overview of the resulting images and considers the social and aesthetic choices photographers made in representing disaster. The program concludes with a selection of early films of San Francisco made shortly after the earthquake.
