The Oakland Neighborhood Project

A photo project that gives people in Oakland's 146 neighborhoods a chance to tell the world about where they live

For most of my life, Oakland has been home. A city rich in people, art, culture, food, politics, commitment, and passion, Oakland faces more than its fair share of urban problems. While some of that is beginning to change for some of Oakland’s residents, not enough and not for everybody. It was with this in mind that back in 2013, I began a photo project that is my contribution to changing Oakland’s image both internally and externally and trying to create and strengthen community.  The Oakland Neighborhood Project is designed to let the people in Oakland’s neighborhoods tell their stories in their own words. I identify and photograph one person, family, or group in each of Oakland’s neighborhoods, with them holding a sign with their message to the rest of the world written on it.  I am actively recruiting participants for this project. If you are interested, let me know. But don’t wait, there are only so many neighborhoods to go around.

I am so thrilled by the feature article in the May 2015 issue of Oakland Magazine.

Specifically, she talks about Stan Dodson, who represents the Dimond neighborhood, and his documentary film project about Oakland's hiking trails.
