The Photography of John Gutmann


The Game, New Orleans 1937

Wandering through SFMOMA this past weekend, I was reminded of my love for John Gutmann. It was the photo above that first turned me onto him several years ago. I love everything about this image. I'm not even going to explain the reasons because my list will go on and on.

Here are a few more...

The Oracle, 1949

The Fleet is In, San Francisco 1934

Texas Women, 1937

I especially love this one because I have those pants. Maybe next time I'll try them with cowboy boots instead of riding boots. I'm always looking for an excuse to wear them.

All images from http://johngutmann.org/

Take a minute to check out the website, there are some great shots of San Francisco during the 1930's.
