From Lucas Foglia’s article for Photo-Eye:
Janet Delaney’s photographs in South of Market tell a complicated story about a complicated time in a complicated place. An unfinished mural of palm trees, a playground with no children, the sunburned head of a man sleeping at the bottom of the slide and a broken record on the grass in the foreground. A woman sweeping in the angled light of the Park Hotel on Folsom Street. Mary Gardner’s kitchen after her apartment burned. Red writing on a wall: “Tim O’Shea: how many people are you evicting this month? How many next month?” There are photographs of people visiting and playing, of homes, of streets, of people working, of stores, of storefronts, of offices, and of new construction with the buildings of San Francisco standing in the background.
