Name: Beth Yarnelle Edwards
Place you live: Burlingame, CA, just outside of San Francisco.
Occupation: Fine art photographer and adjunct professor (ESL at USF).
Preoccupation: Order. I’ve just moved and can’t stand the mess! I’m obsessed with being able to find everything and getting rid of anything I don’t need.
Specific location this photo was taken: In the flats of San Carlos, CA.
Describe a perfect day in San Francisco: If I’m not shooting, my perfect day would be waking up late and then walking downtown via Mission and Valencia Streets, stopping for coffee, lunch, and shopping along the way. Four miles later, I’d see a movie at the Embarcadero Center or visit one of our many great museums. After that, I’d take MUNI home and get together with friends for dinner and conversation.
If San Francisco was a person or a character who would it be? It would be Anna Madrigal, the central character of Armisted Maupin’s Tales of the City. In San Francisco, we’re not always who we appear to be.
Who are three photographers that inspire you? And why? That’s a really hard question. It often depends on what I looked at last. At Paris Photo LA this year, I really enjoyed the photos of Laurent Millet and J. John Priola. I always love August Sander, Jeff Wall, Gilbert Garcin, and Jessica Backhaus. Oh, there are so many! I could go on and on.
