Chinatown is the third in a series of contemporary documentary photography books by San Francisco resident and photographer Dick Evans – following his initial book in 2014 of Haight Ashbury and his 2017 award winning book on the "The Mission" .
His approach in each case has been to develop an in-depth understanding of each neighborhood through close collaboration with leading non-profits, community organizations, artists and local businesses.
In this book he collaborates with freelance writer Kathy Chin Leong, who has conducted over 100 interviews in the course of writing the text, captions and sidebar stories that provide context to the images.
The signed special limited edition with an elegant red cloth slipcover is available exclusively at Chinese Culture Center of San Francisco.
Purchase of the book through CCC supports art, Chinatown, and building strong communities.
