Faces of the Mission

Community activist Jose Cruz said the annual Dia de los Muertos procession was "changing same as the neighborhood," and wants the Latino community to "take our traditions back."

Mission Local walks the streets of the Mission to capture portraits of its residents. This is part of an ongoing photo series on the people of the Mission.

  1. I like the way you not only capture the diversity of the Mission in this series of portraits, but also the lively colors and the art. As a lifelong Oakland, Calif. resident when I think of the Mission district I think of murals, street art, diversity in terms of food, people and businesses; but also in the authenticity of the diverse cultures represented in the district. I look forward to seeing more of your portraits.
