Local photographers Troy Holden and David Root are taking over Incline Gallery in the Mission to exhibit more than 100 snapshots of downtown San Francisco.

Over the past few years, Holden has been using black-and-white photography to document the changes sweeping through Mid-Market as well as candid moments unfolding on streets in front of him. Root, an East Bay native who works in hotels in San Francisco, also uses black-and-white photography to capture life in and around the city's center and on public transportation.

This new exhibition, Class is Warfare, will feature photographs taken throughout the Tenderloin, SoMa, Mid-Market, the Mission and Chinatown. As an added treat, 50 will be on view for the first time and another 50 will be overlaid with watercolor, oil paint and ink illustrations — depicting topical issues affecting residents — by local animator Jarad Barkdoll.

The opening reception is 6-10pm tonight at Incline Gallery (766 Valencia), and the photos are on display through March 3rd.
