    I love this project on so many levels! This project is going to show others that Oakland is not just about our crime statistics. Oakland is a great place to live, to raise one’s children, to express one’s creativity, to view the arts, to hear great music, to walk amazing hiking trails, great food and the list goes on and on. Stephen Texiera is an amazing photographer who brings out the true character of his subjects.
