WORKING HANDS: FRANK SILVA WATERFRONT PHOTOGRAPHS

Frank Silva's photographs of the Oakland waterfront from 1978 through 1988 document a significant period of change from break bulk cargo handling to mechanized containerization and the advent of globalization. Because he worked alongside the subjects in the pictures, Silva’s images are not only compelling, but reflect a rare trust and intimacy. ​
