Oakland Beautiful

A Stephen Texeira Photography Project Celebrating the People of Oakland

A Stephen Texeira Photography Project Documenting the People of Oakland

Each day grotesque political, economic, and social inequalities push us further and further apart; rip asunder the communities that are vital to our future; destroy the families the built this nation; undermine the trust we should have in one another; and blur the lines between truth and reality. It is incumbent upon each of us to do something about this.

We all should strive to make the world a better place every day. I will never pass world-changing legislation, nor will I broker peace in the Middle East. Instead I focus on my community and on Oakland in particular. This is not the only way to do good, and it may not be the best, but it is the way that I’ve chosen. I hope my photography reminds us that we are all one community.
