From the Inside Flap
There has never been a book on this subject with these perspectives and this depth. The combination of Fradkin’s solid historical research with Solnit’s illuminating historical insight combined with Klett’s extensive rephotography breaks new ground.”Robert Dawson, photographer of Farewell Promised Land: Waking from the California Dream
After the Ruins is, in some ways, a century in the making. It is well worth the wait: Klett and his colleagues continue to push the meaning, significance, and power of rephotography. In this poignant commemoration of urban tragedy, they have offered us a meditation on history, imagery, and landscape.”Jennifer A. Watts, Curator of Photographs, The Huntington Library
Top Customer Reviews
Both books are wonderful to read together because the book by Hansen describes what happened during and after the 1906 Fire (and/or 1906 Earthquake), and this book by Fradkin shows more photos from the tragic event. Thus, I recommend both books highly.
