The Day After, Oakland Fire 1991

October 23, 1991

one of my favorite images - we were in the middle of what was once a neighborhood of thousands of homes - eerie beyond words. This photo was made at the moment the sun crested below the City skyline- an extraordinary moment; the air was thick, warm and acrid, you could cut it with a knife.
