Streets of San Francisco

 "No Love Tenderloin California", 2014

     "Peeking Into a Parallel Universe, Tenderloin, California", 2014

 

The place stands alone in my mind.

Not San Francisco.

The Tenderloin, California.

Parallel Universes. Cops. Latinos. Crazies. Whites. African Americans. Asians. Transgender. Dope world. Russians. Organized crime. Poor. Hookers. Kids everywhere. Drugs everywhere. SRO's. Old people. Wheelchairs. People sleeping and dying in broad daylight on the sidewalk and literally in gutters. Black market. Everyone running, jacking, hustling within an ethnic or cultural clique. Running in some strange Kabuki theater where everyone knows their part.

Violence. Hopelessness. Futility.

The humans just detritus to the Tenderloin.

Pete, You have such a great talent to expose the soul of the subjects. Especially the down and out street folks and cops. Keep it up. Soon I am sure you will be as well known as my friend Jim Marshal, and the likes of Anne Liebovitz. You do such great work in Black and White the sign of a true artist. Who would have known that a great street cop would have that talent inside. A pleasure to have known and worked with you. Semper Fidelis, Steve B.
