Erica Deeman titled her breakout spring 2017 solo show at San Francisco’s Anthony Meier Fine Arts Brown. Deeman, who was born in the UK and now lives in California, presented a series of portraits of men from the African diaspora, set against a backdrop the shade of Deeman’s own skin. The portraits drew comparison to the work of Rineke Dijkstra and Dawoud Bey, and announced a new talent in contemporary photography. Deeman’s powerful work, together with photographs by Tammy Rae Carland, John Chiara, Noémie Goudal, Matt Lipps, Alec Soth, and Wolfgang Tillmans, is among the many highlights to be found at Photofairs | San Francisco, which will also feature public conversations with artists David Benjamin Sherry and curators Virginia Heckert and Sarah Meister.

Photofairs | San Francisco will take place at the Festival Pavilion, Fort Mason Center, San Francisco, from February 23–25, 2018.
