I stopped at SF MOMA today on a whim (my membership runs out at the end of the year and I'mnot sure I'll renew) and saw a fantastic photo exhibit: August Sander: People of the Twentieth Century. It was an incredible piece of work. I don't think I've ever been so fascinated with a photo exhibit before. My favorites were a series about political prisoners and persecution victims. The eyes of the subjects in those shots told a story. Anyhow, it's there until February 23rd, check it out.
