As big believers in the shared urban experience, as well as the idea that everyone has a story to tell, we’re all peas in a curious pod.
Now, Julie turns the lens inward as she navigates troubled waters, sharing a little about herself:
I love this city. I love it for all of the things that make it visually and emotionally beautiful. I even love the unpleasant things about the city, in a way. Because no thing shines as brightly without a shadow somewhere in the picture.
I realize now that this project is not just mine, but part of the bigger community here: the one that has encouraged and supported me, and also one that wanted to share and be discovered.
There are people who have written stories and are waiting on me to photograph them, and I simply cannot say when that will happen again. But I want their stories and images to be shared here, and perhaps some of you would like to join in.
Photographers: if this sounds like you, let Julie know you’re interested in stepping up to the plate for an installment of I Live Here: SF. Here’s contact info for Julie Michelle, plus additional details, toward the bottom of her post.
