One City/Two Visions.
San Francisco Panoramas, 1878 and 1990.
Photographs by Mark Klett and Eadweard Muybridge. Essay by Mark Klett. Introduction by Peter Bacon Hales.
Bedford Arts, San Francisco, 1990. 38 pp., 28 duotone illustrations,, 9x12".
Once again, Mark Klett turns his talents to re-photography, this time after a panoramic view of San Francisco done in 1878 by Eadweard Muybridge. Two major earthquakes and 112 years later, Klett's panorama reveals a dramatically altered city, yet one which retains its original character to a remarkable degree. One City/Two Visions combines both extraordinary panoramas into a unique accordion-fold format--the Muybridge on one side, the Klett on the other. The foot-high-panels extend out 10-1/2 feet, providing a visually continuous image of a city in constant change.
This is a rephotograph by Mark Klett of a San Francisco panorama, after a panoramic view done in 1878 by Eadweard Muybridge. Two major earthquakes removed from the original, Klett's image reveals a dramatically altered city, yet which retains some of its original character. One City/Two Visions combines both extraordinary panoramas into a unique accordion-fold format- the Muybridge on one side, the Klett on the other. The one-foot-high-panels extend 10-1/2 feet, spiraling back and forth against each other to provide a visual continuum of a city in constant change.
