All photos: Leanna Yip for the Appeal

Snap/Shot: 99 Years of Looking Fabulous, an exhibit at the recently reopened Eureka Valley/Harvey Milk Memorial Branch of the SF Public Library, is the result of a massive collaboration — GLBTQI Photo Day, held back in October of 2007.

“Donors swarmed into the Eureka Valley Branch throughout the day,” reads a sign out front, “carrying neatly-labeled photo albums, old storage boxes piled high with photographs, and digital camera memory sticks and cards. The events captured in these photographs range from images taken in 1908 to those from as recently as 2007, all of them documenting different aspects of the LGBTQI experience in San Francisco.”

It’s a very sweet, bold, and sometimes touching display at the cozy library. Some of the photos are huge, some are small, some are crisply mounted under plexiglass. Yet the experience is not overwhelming. Go see it.
