Dual Views explores the forgotten labor history of San Francisco: violent battles along the waterfront, a bombing on Market Street, the former dynamite factory in idyllic Glen Canyon and more. SF State alumni Wendy Crittenden and Tom Griscom drew upon the Labor Archives and Research Center’s “San Francisco Labor Landmarks Guide Book” to identify sites and then roamed the city's streets seeking traces of its explosive past. Crittenden and Griscom’s contrasting styles form a fresh vision of the city and add a new perspective on the tradition of landscape photography.
