A portrait of my friends  at one of the annual Xicana Moratorium’s against the war in San Francisco. I wanted to capture the subtleties of each of their personalities as well as the collective beauty of the Baeza sisters. They are emblematic of “the City” to me especially since they and their family showed me so much of San Francisco with so much love and warmth since my arrival to the Bay from Los Angeles. They are my Mission Icons.
