San Francisco in the 1970s
Photographs by Jerry Pritikin

July 30, 2010—Chicago Tribune—"In the way that photographs of Chicago's 1968 Democratic National Convention riots can speak volumes with an image of a single police car or battalion officer, so do Pritikin's snapshots of San Francisco in the 1970s."

Jun 28, 2010—Newcity Art"Deploying a photojournalistic approach, Pritikin went where the action was and captured the vibrant and boisterous spirit of the times, so different from today’s edgy temperament."

Jun 25, 2010—WBEZ's 848New Photography Exhibit Profiles Gay San Francisco in the 1970s

Jun 4, 2010—Huffington Post—"His photographs, on display this summer at the Gage Gallery at Roosevelt University, portray, in Pritikin's puckish style, the cultural transformation that took place in San Francisco. The movement was marked by obscure events like when the police softball team shockingly agreed to play against the gay softball team, and iconic moments, like Pritikin's famous picture of Harvey Milk, speaking into a bullhorn on Orange Tuesday, June 7, 1977."

May 28, 2010—Chicago Tribune—"Local gay rights activist Pritikin's historical images focus on the Bay City's famous Castro neighborhood, which came of age in the late '60s and early '70s alongside politician and activist Harvey Milk. Now 73, Pritikin says, "When I took these photos, I never thought they would become a marker in history.""

A Procession of Them: The Plight of the Mentally Disabled
Photographs by Euguene Richards

April 12, 2010—Newcity Art—"As Chicago’s premier space for showcasing contemporary critical social photo-documentary, the Gage Gallery has come up with another searing exhibition..."

March 4, 2010—Gapers Block Website—"Eugene Richards, an award winning documentary photographer, does not allow the trauma of this situation to escape the eyes and hearts of viewers."

Feb 5, 2010—Chicago Art Magazine—"In every picture though, he [Richards] equates that person’s life to your own. To me, in Richards’s photographs, I see such raw emotion and imagery that I am terrified that what is happening in the picture, could happen to me. I can’t remember ever feeling this way before while looking at photographs."
