Kodakan photo day for Shades of San Francisco history project
SAN FRANCISCO—The San Francisco Public Library and SoMA Pilipinas are inviting past and
present members of San Francisco’s Filipino community to get their photos into the San
Francisco History Center’s archives for present and future generations.
Shades of San Francisco is a neighborhood and ethnic community history photograph-collecting
project is being conducted by the San Francisco Public Library with SoMa Pilipinas, a community
initiative for developing a Filipino Cultural Heritage District in San Francisco.
Kodakan (Photo Day Event) will take place at the San Francisco Public Library, 100 Larkin Street, San Francisco CA on Saturday, May 1 at, 10 a.m.–4 p.m.
The San Francisco Public Library’s Shades of San Francisco Project approached SoMa Pilipinas
for the joint venture. The Project’s mission is to copy photographs from family albums, private
collections, and computers of current and former San Francisco residents to highlight the rich
diversity of the city. The copied photos will be added to the San Francisco History Center’s
photo archives and digital library in order to create a permanent record of the daily lives of
Filipino San Franciscans.
On Saturday, May 13 Photo Day, the San Francisco Public Library with their staff and volunteers
will copy photos and have the contributors to meet and socialize with the SoMa Pilipinas
Photo albums, loose photographs and digital photos are welcome. To make an appointment, c
