Statement

In addition to my photography seen on femmefotographie.com, I have an ongoing portrait and story project called I Live Here:SF

I Live Here:SF is an open invitation to San Francisco residents to enjoy and participate in, sharing many facets of life in this city with each other and the world at large. The project has been featured in the San Francisco Chronicle, SF Weekly, KQED Arts Online and The Urbanist.

I Live Here:SF is a photography/portraiture project that I began in March 2009. It is an exploration of the city through the visages and stories of the people who participate, and through it, I have learned so much about San Francisco and its myriad of nano-neighborhoods and micro-climates. Living here in San Francisco, and our communal attachment to the city, is the common thread for the work that I am doing.

My subjects are willing to share the nooks and crannies of the day-to-day places that mark their lives as well as glimpses into the way that San Francisco itself has become an integral part of their identities.

Each portrait session is truly a partnership. It’s also unique in that the majority of people who participate have never met me prior to volunteering and I often know nothing about them, not even what they look like: all I know is that they live here, too. People have seen my work online at iliveheresf.com and follow the site, and others volunteer because they know someone else who has participated. By nature, my project is very inclusive and I’m very proud of that. Anyone can participate in I live here:SF as long as they are a San Francisco resident and are willing to write a story or poem based on their life here.
