Giving Directions to Clueless Tourists by Ken Osborn

Thanks to Ken Osborn, aka Misterken, for taking this great photo of visitors interacting with George Segal’s Chance Meeting. Ken explains it further:

“I went to SFMOMA with friends to see the Fisher Collection (Calder to Warhol). While it was truly an impressive collection, I was most fascinated by New Topographics: Photographs of a Man-Altered Landscape. Perhaps that’s my bias as a ‘photographer.’

“While looking at the art on the rooftop garden, I waited for a group in front of this sculpture so I could take a shot then realized what I was looking at and (after moving left so the guy was anonymous) took the shot. A moment later they all left and I have no idea who they were.”

Thanks, Ken!
