Discover a Forgotten New Deal Photographer in SF

Grant at Natural BridgesAn unknown elder of American landscape photography, George Alexander Grant (pictured) was the first Chief Photographer of the National Park Service. Though his iconic images inspired millions of Americans to visit their national parks, Grant is largely unknown because his images were simply credited “National Park Service.”

Ren and Helen Davis’s award-winning Landscapes for the People: George Alexander Grant, First Chief Photographer of the National Park Service, has finally brought Grant the attention he deserves. Join the Davises on Thursday, November 3, from 6-8 pm, when they will be the featured guests at the Presidio of San Francisco Officer’s Club.

This event, brought to you by The Presidio Trust and The Living New Deal, is free and open to the public. Click here to register.
