San Francisco artist, Anna Kuperberg’s black and white series titled “South Side” documents the children living in a working class neighborhood that borders the big factories of St. Louis near the Mississippi River. Kuperberg writes, “They make toys out of anything they find – a tire a discarded box spring, or the siding that fell off the shed. Their ingenuity and resourcefulness impresses me. They roam freely from yard to yard, and when they see me they yell, ‘Hey lady, take my picture!’” The South Side photographs received an honorable mention from the Honickman Foundation/Center for Documentary Studies First Book Prize.
