Film Screening, Fred Lyon – Living Through the Lens
Sunday, September 29, 2013 at 2:00 pm
Tickets: Regular $10 | YBCA Member, Student, Senior, Teacher $8 | YBCA You FREE

“This world premiere is an intimate exposé of San Francisco photographer Fred Lyon, who is still going strong after seven decades behind the camera. Though Lyon is one of America’s leading advertising, interior design, architectural, food, wine, and travel photographers, he is best known locally for his mood-soaked street photography of San Francisco in the ’40s and ’50s. Lyon photographed the transformation of his treasured hometown into a center for optimism, prosperity, and growth after World War II, a truly extraordinary documentation of the City in black-and-white. Fred Lyon: Living Through the Lens tells the story of this prolific, innovative artist. (2013, 52 min, digital)”

Director Michael House and Fred Lyon will be present for the screening.
