“Iconic” is the only word that comes to mind when we talk about the work of photographer, Stephen Somerstein. From his youth at the museums of New York City to his photography of the Selma to Montgomery March of ’65. Stephen’s photos of such legendary figures as Dr. Martin Luther King, John Lewis, Andrew Young, Bayard Rustin and many others, will grace the pages of history books forever.
Kicking off 2018, we’re sitting down with San Francisco photographer, Brenton Gieser, to discuss his documentary project and process. Through audio-video interviews and countless hours, Brenton introduces us to the Tenderloin and a community that is often ignored, but truly robust in culture and humanity. Tender Souls immediately turns up the volume and gives voice to those with stories to tell and no one to listen.
