ABOUT THE PROJECT

PEOPLE

East Oakland Church Project

The church buildings presented here are the physical manifestations of actively engaged communities functioning in East Oakland. Many of these communities organize to provide forms of assistance for their parishioners and, when able, the greater community at large. The sheer mass of churches in my immediately surrounding neighborhood displays a grassroots commitment to both service and community. This project, while a record in time of the buildings that stand, is meant to look beyond that and celebrate the many spiritual communities trying to have a positive, real-world impact on my East Oakland neighborhood.

The photos for this project were taken between 2006-2007.
