Travis Jensen: Scouring the streets of San Francisco on a daily basis, Jensen doesn’t just photograph the unique, eclectic characters and environment of the city, he brings his subjects kicking and screaming to life – exploring the real street life and personalities that few tourists get to see. If you’re a “fixture” on the streets of San Francisco, chances are Travis already knows you, has interacted with you, traded life stories, and of course... has photographed you. Travis’s relentless passion for shooting photos has resulted in his deeply personal, striking and unapologetic work being exhibited numerous times, while appearing in a variety of print and online publications. He’s also collaborated with multiple big-name companies and has published several books. But his pursuit of photography has never been about making money. Most of the profits from his photos and books are donated to Larkin street Youth Services – a San Francisco based non-profit organization that provides various support services for at-risk youth living on the street. As an at-risk youth himself once – coming to San Francisco fresh out of high school and becoming immersed in the thriving skateboard scene – Jensen believes in giving back to the city that raised him and taught him so much. “Growing up” in the city, the streets have never quite left him – and he has a special understanding of his home and its inhabitants that is uniquely reflected in his stunning candid street shots and portraits. Chalk SF: CHALK is the only youth-run, peer-to-peer employment program in San Francisco that targets in-risk youth, placing them in paid jobs typically staffed by adults. Founded in 1996, CHALK has trained and hired more than 750 part-time youth, provided more than 750,000 hours of training, and paid out more than $2 million in youth wages. Our Mission is to provide youth with transformative youth development and employment. We utilize a wrap-around model, providing participants with job training, work experience, leadership building, academic support, case management and advocacy. Our philosophy is that “youth people can do anything with the appropriate amount of training and support!”
