The Mission

$27.00 Member Price

By Dick Evans

“Dick Evans's eye captures the incredible, multicultural, rich life of the people in el Barrio de La Mission. His colorful, amazing photos mirror our vibrant cultural celebrations, struggle for justice, delicious food, historical Victorian homes, murals that speak and tell our stories, lowriders, merchants, and our lifestyle.”—Roberto Y. Hernandez, executive director, Carnaval San Francisco

Poetry and quotations from Mission residents are interspersed throughout, deepening viewers’ immersion into this community. But the heart of this book is the Mission’s famous public art: works that depict Latin American culture, resistance to political oppression, passion for environmental justice, and outrage at gentrification. Evans’s photos highlight the growing threat to the neighborhood’s character, but they also reveal the many changes that have shaped the neighborhood into its vivacious present-day identity.
