Artistic expression is not uncommon on the public walls around San Francisco (just take a stroll through the Mission neighborhood’s alleys to see what we mean). The latest set of alleys (and parking garage) to be transformed were the city’s Yerba Buena alleys, located downtown by many of San Francisco’s much talked about museums (e.g. SFMoMA) and busiest shopping areas. This public art installation has been called, Sites Unseen, in which the mural we shot was painted by local San Francisco artist Barry McGee. What a great backdrop his artwork was for our latest shoot.

For our first shoot, we decided to draw some inspiration from the newly renovated Public Market Emeryville. The food emporium features beautiful walls like the ones pictured below and of course a slew of delicious eats (e.g. Koja Kitchen, Shiba Ramen, Hot Italian).
