75 Reasons to Live: Sam Green on Unknown artist’s Untitled [Women Racing]

Sam Green is a documentary filmmaker living in San Francisco. He speaks about an unattributed, untitled photograph of women racing, made around 1915, and reflects on what orphan images like this one say about time and memory.

Remember the end of Manhattan, when Woody Allen asks himself what makes life worth living? In January 2010, during SFMOMA's three-day 75th anniversary celebration, 75 people from the Bay Area creative community gave extremely short talks — 7.5 minutes or less! — on a single collection work of their choosing. Someone called it "manic splendor" — and it was. You can view all of the talks on The Anniversary Show exhibition page. Or look for them here, on Open Space.
