Photographer Dick Evans introduces his new book of photographs of San Francisco’s Mission District that focus on that neighborhood’s quintessential art form, the community mural. The Mission, with foreword by Juan Felipe Herrera and introduction by Carla Wojczuk, features photographs of murals, architecture, and residents, together with quotes, poems, and essays by artists and writers from the Mission. Evans’s previous book, in collaboration with Ben Fong-Torres, was San Francisco and the Bay Area: The Haight-Ashbury Edition. A book signing follows the reading.

Dick Evans became interested in photography as a graduate student at Stanford University and continued his practice throughout a forty-seven-year career in the global metals industry that took him all over the world. San Francisco always remained home base, though, and he now lives in the city with his wife, Gretchen. Evans is the author of the photography book San Francisco and the Bay Area: The Haight- Ashbury Edition (InTransit Images and The Booksmith, 2011).
