‘Sunday Streets’ Portraits

Throughout the summer the city of San Francisco’s ‘Sunday Streets’ program closes stretches of city streets to automobile traffic and opens them to people for several hours on a various Sundays throughout the year so participants can enjoy a large, temporary, public space where they can engage in a large variety of activities including biking, walking, running and dancing.

In April we walked down Third Street in SF’s Bayview District to say hello to our neighbors.

I’m honored to have this portrait selected for inclusion in this years American Photography annual .

This photo of Army veteran Dan Berschinski was made in his Stanford apartment in October 2014 for a USA Today veterans affairs special section. The image was not published with the story.

Dan, who lost both his legs and part of his left hand when he stepped on an improvised explosive device just outside Kandahar, Afghanistan in 2009, displays his state-of-the-art prosthetics which have given him a degree of mobility that was once almost impossible. A true warrior spirit in every sense, Dan is one of the most courageous and resilient individuals I’ve ever met.
