The Saint Francis Foundation is a non-profit organization entrusted to provide philanthropic support to Saint Francis Memorial Hospital and the community the hospital serves. The foundation works closely with the city of San Francisco to provide grant funding to organizations and projects improving health outcomes in communities like the Tenderloin.
The Saint Francis Foundation in partnership with the San Francisco Department of Public Health came to both Felix Uribe and myself looking to captures the essence of the Tenderloin from the context of public health, both positive and negative. The photographs were taken over the course of a few months and documented both organic life on the streets and grantee related events. The images will be used through their online properties and 2017 Annual Report.
