Multimedia Chronicles Life In San Fran

The everyday existence of San Francisco residents forms the latest subject of an online multimedia project.

San Francisco Chronicle journalist Mike Kepka took his inspiration from the lives happening around him to produce a series of photo galleries with accompanying audio clips.

Among his subjects is a flower seller, a promotional worker dressed as the Statue of Liberty, an impromptu Easter bonnet party and a small group of lads out for St Patrick’s Day drinks.

Kepka illustrates each snapshot of a life with a series of images while allowing the subjects to tell their own stories in their own words.

Entitled The City Exposed, the collection caught the eye of Editor & Publisher’s online editor Pauline Millard and is included in her recent picks of multimedia initiatives on US news sites.

Millard writes that each set of photos and audio represents “an instant story that is told in less than five minutes”.

“The project isn’t complicated but shows a nice swatch of San Francisco.”
