The Streets of San Francisco Workshop

It's the people we pass on the street that can affect our lives as easily as we can affect theirs. Our challenge is to slow down, disconnect from our pods, and reconnect with people and our environment. You are encouraged to make photographs that move beyond the stereotypes and popular images of your communities to present your own visual narratives.
