I got a call from Jen at Saint Vincent de Paul on Friday. She wanted to know if I could come to a women’s shelter that they work with and photograph some of the kids there.  Monday evening Jen picked me up at BART and took me to the shelter (at a confidential location). Part of the challenge of photographing there would be that the images had to be taken in such a way as to obscure the identity of the young subjects.

  • Patrice Kavanaugh - I’m the wife of the former Executive Director at St. Vincent de Paul. I love these pix of the kids at the Riley Center….a wonderful and unsentimental reminder that, through the good hard work of a lot of caring people, these kids get a chance at growing up in a safe place. Thanks for sharing the message with images that make you smile.June 30, 2009 – 2:35 pm
