Art Gallerythis month alexa kalani: oakland photographs
Alexa Kalani was born and raised in the Bay Area. As a black queer woman she seeks not to define life's differences, but to capture the nuances of livelihood. A constant observer, she takes film pictures and is also a producer of documentary and experimental short movies. As a resident of Oakland for 4 years she has seen lots of things, most notably grass growing out of impenetrable cracks, crack heads sharing community dinners, kids hustling selling cookies to play sports and people working out how to live life beautiful.
