The Mission: The Working District
Take a district/neighborhood in San Francisco, then explore and document by photographing and creating a book. Unlike the Chamber of Commerce who would usually "fluff" neighborhoods, we had to reveal these neighborhoods on how they really were.
Everyone knows that the Mission District is mainly occupied by Mexicans and Hispanics. And with that generations have brought their culture to the streets of that neighborhood with bright and vibrant life and food. But whats not shown are the struggles these people face everyday and what they have to do to overcome it.
