city of stairways, 2010

i was commissioned to create san francisco inspired collages for 
a poetry anthology meets travel guide of san francisco, 
produced by the san francisco writerscorps. i wanted these
collages to be compact and whimsical as well as 7 x 7 inches,
denoting the size of the city. using found text, photographs
and ephemera, i created collages inspired by neighborhoods of SF, 
including Japantown, Fishermans Wharf and Treasure Island.
the book itself was designed by the talented adrienne aquino.
