San Francisco is a dynamic and mythical city defined by its distinct neighborhoods, world-class museums, breathtaking beauty and its history of political and cultural trailblazing. From the Gold Rush and the boom to Harvey Milk and the Beats, there is no city like San Francisco. It is a place where photography has a strong tradition and an imposing presence; from Ansel Adams to Larry Sultan countless photographers of note have made the San Francisco Bay Area their home and their inspiration. San Francisco and the surrounding areas including Berkeley, Oakland, Marin County and San Jose are home to a long tradition of photography and a nurturing host to numerous active and vibrant photography galleries, museums and non-profit spaces, as well as some of the strongest photography programs in the country. We invite you to the 2012 conference to experience the richness, beauty and inspiration of San Francisco. CLICK HERE to check out a Google Map - filled with places to visit, eat, and explore!
