Overview

How exactly has San Francisco's urban landscape changed in the hundred years since the earthquake and cataclysmic firestorms that destroyed three-quarters of the city in 1906? For this provocative rephotography project, bringing past and present into dynamic juxtaposition, renowned photographer Mark Klett has gone to the same locations pictured in forty-eight compelling historic photographs taken in the days following the 1906 earthquake and fires and precisely duplicated each photograph's vantage point.
