About this project

From 2008-2012, Joe Sciarrillo and Matt Werner were on the ground photographing the major social movements and cultural events in the San Francisco Bay Area. This photobook is a collection of their best photos of protests and social movements including the Oscar Grant protests, Occupy Oakland, Occupy SF, May Day marches, Free Gaza, and Free Burma protests.

Also included in the book are photos of Bay Area cultural events like the San Francisco Giants winning the World Series, Bay to Breakers, Oakland’s First Friday Art Murmur, and Carnaval. This book chronicles many events not heavily reported on by the mainstream media, and it gives a unique lens through which to view life in the Bay Area during President Barack Obama’s first term.

Risks and challenges

One challenge for the project is the price of printing a photobook. I'm prepared to address this by only printing a limited number at local printers in the Bay Area. I've already printed some test copies of the book, and I should be able to keep the price of the book down. By printing locally (and not overseas), I will be able to ship copies for Christmas to Kickstarter contributors.

Other challenges include doing the design and layout of the book. I've honed design and layout skills from years working in publishing and writing. Most recently, I did the layout for my Oakland in Popular Memory book project on Kickstarter last year: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/mattwerner/oakland-in-popular-memory-book-project.
