About a week ago, Travis and I hooked up with San Francisco Chronicle writer David Wagner for lunch at Little Henry’s restaurant on Larkin Street for an interview about our Tenderloin USA project. We figured the story would end up as a small piece somewhere in the paper’s Datebook section, but come Saturday morning were shocked to discover it made the cover – and the story was substantial! Check out the online version here.
Pictured above are Ashley, her dog Diamond, and Kenny, holding up the paper for the shot. They live in a building near Geary and Hyde along with a handful of other individuals we’ve photographed in the past, two of which are featured in our journal.
We’re now halfway past our goal of selling 300 journals and are stoked about the money we’re raising for Larkin Street Youth Services. To review or purchase Tenderloin USA Photo Journal, please click here.
Also, we’ll be having an official launch party for Tenderloin USA on Wednesday, August 10, from 6-10pm at Ever Gold Gallery, located at 441 O’Farrell St (between Taylor and Jones). A flier will be posted soon. Please stop by if you’re in the area!
