As many of you know Hot House Exclusive Kent North passed away late last year leaving behind a stellar legacy. Many of you might be surprised to know that he was also a professional behind the camera as well. One of North’s most inspiring pieces of work is The Mechanics Monument, a photo he shot while visiting San Francisco. His surviving partner Lloyd recently released 15 limited edition prints of the photo for sale with proceeds directly benefiting North’s favorite charity, the St. Stephen’s AIDS Trust in London.
The Mechanics Monument is one of the few San Francisco sculptures to survive the earthquake of 1906 and has become a symbol of empowerment and hope to the city’s citizens since its unveiling on May 15, 1901. The 26″ x 21″ work is one of 4 original pieces shot by North that were recently presented in exhibition in London. Anyone interested in viewing or purchasing one of these limited edition reprints can see them at Magnet, 4122 18th Street, San Francisco.
