A collection of three decades worth of unforgettable faces captures the diverse peoples of San Francisco, from the beat poets of North Beach and the opera divas to the tenant organizers and cigar-smoking old Italians. Original.

Book News
Three themes from Nowinski's oeuvre are presented in this oversized volume (10.5x12"): beat poets, impoverished men in rooming houses (that were shortly afterwards destroyed as they watched), and the performers of San Francisco Opera. Photographed in b&w in the 1970s, the photos present a personal view of San Francisco's North Beach neighborhood, on the one hand, and its internationally renowned cultural icons, on the other.
