Among the less appreciated forms of public art are the myriad of inscriptions that people have left in wet cement. Despite their relative permanence in public spaces, they remain largely unnoticed by the multitudes passing by. Many of these works are created under challenging conditions: the furtive, unanticipated moment when one discovers a pliable patch of cement, and the quick burst of inspiration it demands. San Francisco has a plethora of sgraffiti of great subtlety and originality, many which manage to grace the city for decades.

As a San Francisco photographer, I have spent years documenting San Francisco's sidewalk inscriptions, and am compiling a book on the subject. By presenting the project in book form, I hope to take the viewer on a treasure hunt of San Francisco's streets, and impart a new awareness of the poetry that lies at our feet! I am currently looking for a publisher, and also for venues in which to exhibit this work.  You can find more of my work on the web at
