Review

"After the Ruins is a remarkable achievement. A moving commemoration of a tragic centennial; the residual landscapes of San Francisco that beckon from these words and pictures remind us of history's power and its proximity. Klett, Fradkin, and Solnit are brilliant guides through San Francisco landscapes then and now." - William Deverell, Director, Huntington-USC Institute on California and the West." "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"

From the Inside Flap

"After the Ruins is a remarkable achievement. A moving commemoration of a tragic centennial; the residual landscapes of San Francisco that beckon from these words and pictures remind us of history's power and its proximity. Klett, Fradkin, and Solnit are brilliant guides through San Francisco landscapes then and now."--William Deverell, Director, Huntington-USC Institute on California and the West."

"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
