ROOM, Hunters Point/Bayview

ROOM, Little Children by Kirk Crippens

I've just posted a gallery of images from a new project, a work in progress titled ROOM. My adventure with this series began in 2010 with an email from Michael Jang that read, "I know you shoot change..."

Michael asked if I'd continue a body of work he'd begun ten years before in Hunters Point. He started describing the growing pains San Francisco's Bayview-Hunters Point neighborhood has been experiencing. For decades the community remained largely undisturbed by the developer's transforming touch. Today a vast wave of construction just north of Bayview churns closer each month. The Third Street Light Rail Project, or T Line, began full operation in 2007 and now MUNI trains run up and down the heart of the neighborhood. The Hunters Point Naval Shipyard, which was the economic engine of the community before being decommissioned in the 1970s, is now a major redevelopment site; the project promises to convert over 700 acres of waterfront property into residential and commercial real estate.

Spanning a decade, ROOM observes a neighborhood poised for dramatic shift. It explores the acres of open space slated for development and the rooms of the people who have lived their lives in Bayview-Hunters Point.

Thank you,

Kirk Crippens
