David Johnson Retrospective in San Francisco

"David Johnson, a native of Jacksonville, Fla., was the first African American student of Ansel Adams. In Adams’ school he was advised to photograph his own neighborhood and document the faces and places with which he was most familiar. He subsequently became an important chronicler of black life in San Francisco in the middle part of the 20th century." 

This retrospective of his work is being shown at the Harvey Milk Photo Center in San Francisco through October 19th.
