Temporal Atlas: San Francisco

San Francisco is a mad city - inhabited for the most part by perfectly insane people whose women are of a remarkable beauty.
— Rudyard Kipling

Temporal Atlas: San Francisco, 2015

This project was conceived as a installation piece. The idea was to start from a point in downtown San Francisco, and each day walk in a different direction, at a different time of day, and as luck would have it, in different weather conditions. Once the images were shot, they were printed in a darkroom and mounted. The mounted prints were then laid out in a grid on a black background moving roughly from morning to evening and northeast to southwest from the top right to bottom left. The images are placed on stanchions of varying heights so that they overlap, and a grid of white cotton twill string weaves between the prints and holds them in place, representing the city grid and hilly character of San Francisco.
