Stephen Texeira - Exceptional Photography
Thursday Luncheon Speaker
Oakland photographer Stephen Texeira wants to do for his city what he does for his clients: cast it in the best light possible and show a side of Oakland that gets far too little attention.
Texeira wants to capture Oakland's good side, but not like in one of his modeling shoots.
He's not looking for the prettiest, most alluring face he can find. Instead, he wants to capture the essence of Oakland neighborhoods in faces that tell the story of a city with a vast and diverse immigrant population; a long, proud history of African American residents; and a city of triumphs and tragedy.
