In 1978, Janet Delaney moved to San Francisco’s South of Market (SoMa) district because the location was central and the rent was cheap. She was a student at the San Francisco Art Institute at the time. Delaney began taking photographs with a view camera on the weekends. She initially shot construction sites near her apartment, including the vast Moscone convention center.

“As I continue to photograph in San Francisco and in urban areas around the world,” says Delaney, “I see that who plays and who pays remains, as it always was, the central issue.”
