Late last year, we told you about a photo project that took place at the Richmond District branch library called “Through Our Eyes: Visual Stories of the Richmond Neighborhood”.
The workshop was led by photojournalist Frederic Larson, who worked at the San Francisco Chronicle for thirty years, where he covered all types of assignments – from fires to football, earthquakes to celebrities.
Larson invited amateur photographers to come out and capture a visual snapshot of the Richmond District neighborhood by covering 18 square blocks in and around the library.
The video above highlights the project and its participants, which resulted in not only interesting photographs, but also some insights into the residents and our variety of cultures.
Librarian Dorothy Kimmel, who spearheaded the project, tells us some of the photos can be seen on the branch Facebook page, and that “in the near future I will post a slide show and two photo stories.”
