TENDERLOIN : The Beauty of the San Francisco Ghetto

Book Design (2009)

Tenderloin: The Beauty of the San Francisco Ghetto is a concept project created from film photographs I shot in 2000. The Tenderloin is an area in downtown San Francisco with a reputation for crime, illegal drug trade, homelessness and prostitution. For many, the living conditions are harsh and below poverty level, but in that struggle for survival, there is beauty. Thus spawned the idea of combining fashion editorial typography, which is synonyms with glamour, and juxtaposing it with B&W street photography. Hence, the contrasting beauty of both worlds are now brought together on an even plain.
