Chris Schiavo’s color-saturated photographs of backyards in Queens, New York—such as the burning doghouse depicted in Fido—are both nostalgic and surreal. “The Backyard,” a series of chromeogenic prints created over a period of 12 years, is on display at San Francisco’s ArtHaus (411 Brannan St) through September 30. Some images by the New York–based artist are now in the permanent collections of New York’s MoMA and Metropolitan Museum of Art.
