90-year-old photographer Fred Lyon, also known as “San Francisco’s Brassai” is now a full-of-experience aged man, because of the beautiful moments he has been capturing all these years, through his camera lens. During the golden years of magazine publishing, his pictures have been hosted everywhere, from LIFE to VOGUE and beyond. He has been compared to Cartier Bresson, Atget, Adre Kertesz, but he was defined and different due to his native love for San Francisco. Lyon’s love for his home, impacted his photography work, which now is made as a book, showing San Francisco back in 40s and 50s.
