Ruins at Sutro Baths and the Cliff House restaurant.
A large privately owned swimming pool complex built in the late 1800's by a former mayor of SF Adolf Sutro. Shortly after closing due to high maintenance costs, a fire in 1966 destroyed the building. All that remains now are the ruins and broken pathways.
A photograph similar to this one is what I had seen a long time back, and it made me go "Wow! Now that's a place I want to be in". After moving to SF and starting the MFA program majoring in Photography, this is the first photograph I went hunting after and created my own version of it. It marks the the beginning of a journey for me. Love it!
Breaking down the MFA Photography program at the Academy of Arts University into smaller digestible pieces, so that you know what it is mostly about. This of-course is no replacement to the abundance of information available at the university's website. It is more from the perspective of a new international grad student. Do add a pinch of salt, and know that as and when I gather more information or get into a 'aha' moment I will update the post.
