To explain present-day landscape processes and predict future changes to the land, scientists look back into history to track the continually evolving relationship of land use to landscape change. One of the most effective ways to do this is through aerial photography. In the early 1920s, pioneering aerial photographer George E. Russell began documenting San Francisco and its still-semirural surroundings. As part of their continuing investigation of the rapid transformation of the Bay Area’s physical landscape, the historical ecologists and artists of the Stillhere group (creators of the StillHere panel strips in several past issues of Bay Nature) have mounted an exhibit of Russell’s images at U.C. Berkeley’s Townsend Center for the Humanities. The exhibit runs until October 21. For more information, call (510) 746-7380.
