The Art of Living in the Tenderloin: A Look at SF’s Homeless Community

Art gives a voice to the homeless men and women living in the Tenderloin.

Very much a part of our city’s urban fabric, the homeless community of San Francisco is often overlooked and even shunned. Two Bay Area artists Hugh Leeman  (street artist) and Sean Desmond  (videographer and photographer),  create portraits of the homeless men and women living in the Tenderloin and have found a way to give a voice to those normally “unseen.” 

Producer and Director Clemence Demerliac’s thoughts”¦
I created this video because I am convinced that art is a good way to raise social awareness. Through their artistic actions, Leeman and Desmond are making positive changes in their local community.
