San Francisco Noir
Photographs by Fred Lyon
October 12 - December 30, 2017
Artist reception, book launch and signing: Thursday, October 12, 6pm-8pm


The Gallery at Leica Store San Francisco, in collaboration with Peter Fetterman Gallery, presents photographs by San Francisco photographer Fred Lyon (b. 1924). Opening October 12, 2017 and running through December 30, 2017, the exhibition will feature a newly released selection of Fred Lyon’s iconic photographs. Following in the footsteps of classic films like The Maltese Falcon and The Lady from Shanghai, veteran photographer Fred Lyon creates images of San Francisco in high contrast with a sense of mystery. In this latest offering from the photographer of San Francisco: Portrait of a City 1940–1960, Lyon presents a darker tone, exploring the hidden corners of his native city.

Join us on Thursday, October 12 for an artist reception and launch of his latest book, San Francisco Noir, published by Princeton Architectural Press.
