It contains 160+ photos & paintings to illustrate how this famous district has acted on the photographic & painterly imagination. Bringing together art history & the social & political history of San Francisco, this vividly detailed study unravels the complex cultural encounter that occurred between the people living in Chinatown & the artists who walked its streets, observed its commerce, & indulged in its nightlife. Lee shows how their experiences in the district helped encourage, & even structured, some of their most ambitious experiments with brush & lens. Illus.
