The images Jones captured ended up having a surprisingly personal impact after he entered the photographs in the Underwater Photographer of the Year awards. His entry was published and spotted by the late co-pilot's family who got in touch with Jones. 'Mike Mandel: Good 70s' at San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.

How Diane Arbus’s Photographs Capture The Heart of NYC. An SFMOMA exhibit of Diane Arbus’s early photographs reveals how she threw herself into photographing every kind of person she saw on Manhattan’s streets. On the third floor of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art there is the best kind of gallery hush, as visitors peer closely at the photographs Diane Arbus took between 1956 and 1962, “in the beginning” (as the exhibition is titled) of her career, mostly on the streets of New York.
