(SAN FRANCISCO.) Muybridge ,Eadweard
Panorama of San Francisco from California St. Hill. San Francisco: Morse’s Gallery, 1877
“One of the supreme conceptual and technical achievements in the history of architectural photography.” – David Harris
This iconic, 7-foot long image of San Francisco is one of the landmarks of 19th-century American photography. “The photographs show the extraordinary extent of a city that had come into existence a mere thirty years before and which would be destroyed by earthquake and subsequent fires thirty years later” (Getty Museum Journal). Seamlessly combining a series of eleven photographs, Muybridge created a 360 degree view of the city, producing what Rebecca Solnit calls “an impossible sight, a vision of the city in all directions, a transformation of a circular space into a linear photograph.”
