I think part of the fun of Hamburger Eyes is seeing the spreads. All these random moments from random photographers at random times in random places seemingly fit all together to tell some kind of story. I just found a folder of all these layouts from random past issues, I think it was for a slide show I had to do. It makes me think in these modern times maybe we should do an e-book release of some of the past issues? I don’t know if that’s the way I like to look at books, but then again, more often than not, I now find myself reading websites, articles, and books off my phone and tablet anyways. What do you think? Would you even want to download a photo book? And what would you even pay for a pdf download of 100 pages of awesome photos?

Mark Wolfe Contemporary is pleased to present “Fifty Years of San Francisco Street Photography, 1965-2015” an exhibition of never-before-seen images from veteran street photographers Maury Edelstein and Ted Pushinsky, the City’s reigning elder statesmen of the genre.

San Francisco has undergone convulsive, disruptive change over the past five decades, from the dawn of 60s counterculture, through the current decade’s housing and gentrification battles. Perhaps more than any other U.S. city, San Francisco seems to exist in a perpetual state of tumultuous flux. Upon closer examination, however, it is clear the human soul of the City is much the same as it ever was.

The photographs in this exhibition offer a compelling visual document of this paradox. Working entirely separately since the early 60s, Edelstein and Pushinsky have captured hundreds of candid images from the City’s streets, parks, buses, and front stoops. The selections on view at Wolfe Contemporary testify to the notion that although the cars, clothes, hairstyles, and skyline may have morphed radically over the decades, the people are still the people.

Maury Edelstein (born 1930) still lives within walking distance of Chinatown, North Beach, Downtown, and is a short bus ride to the Mission District. He began taking pictures in the 1950s, and continues to take photographs every day. Ted Pushinsky (born 1946) has been making photographs in San Francisco for over forty years. The two had never met or encountered one another’s work until this show.
