Photography festival coming to San Francisco
On the heels of the landmark re-opening of SFMOMA and the inauguration of the Minnesota Street Project, the robust photography community in the Bay Area has long lamented the lack of a festival to match their fervor. PHOTOFAIRS | San Francisco hopes to change that.
