The (In)Visible Project
The (In)Visible Project is a multimedia installation that presents an intimate and dignified human portrait of San Diego’s homeless population. Through timeless photographic portraiture and first-person stories, it offers residents and visitors the opportunity to challenge their perceptions of those living on our city’s streets. This project confronts the stigma surrounding homelessness, raises awareness about the realities facing San Diego’s homeless population, and provides a space for our community to come together to learn, discuss, and take action to address the issue.

There are now almost ten thousand men, women, and children in our community who carry on with their lives hidden in plain sight. We often pass by – or look away from – our homeless neighbors because we feel there’s little we can do to help.

The number of people living on San Diego’s streets is rising. Families continue to be impacted by the ongoing economic crisis, losing jobs and homes. Veterans are returning from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan without the support they need, and many of them are ending up on the street.

For social, economic, and humanitarian reasons, we must explore new ways of addressing homelessness before it reaches epidemic proportions in our community. Many of those on the streets seek refuge on sidewalks, in doorways, in parks, and underneath highway overpasses throughout the city – in wealthy neighborhoods and poor ones alike. It is a reality that concerns us all.

We believe that challenging public perceptions about homelessness is the first step to finding real and lasting solutions to the bleak reality faced by far too many people in our city. (In)Visible reveals the faces of the individuals and families we often fail to see, and shares the stories of those we fail to hear.

"Bear Guerra is a photographer whose work explores the human impact of globalization, development, and social and environmental justice issues in communities typically underrepresented in the media.

In addition to editorial assignments, he is consistently working on long-term projects, and collaborates with non-profit organizations working for social justice and on environmental issues. His photo essays and images have been published and exhibited widely, both in the United States and abroad.

He was a Ted Scripps Fellow in Environmental Journalism for the 2013-2014 academic year at the University of Colorado - Boulder; a 2014 Mongabay Special Reporting Initiative Fellow; as well as a 2014 International Reporting Project Health and Development Reporting Fellow. In 2012, he was chosen as a Blue Earth Alliance project photographer for his ongoing project "La Carretera: Life Along Peru's Interoceanic Highway". Other recognitions have included being selected for publication in American Photography (2005, 2015, 2016) and Latin American Fotografía (2014, 2016, 2017); an honorable mention in the 2012 Photocrati Fund competition for the same project; he was a finalist for a National Magazine Award in Photojournalism (2010).

Bear was the photographer and creative director for the (In)Visible Project - a mobile, multimedia installation that offers a human portrait of homelessness in San Diego, as well as a lead instructor at the AjA Project - a participatory photography program that works with refugee youth in San Diego.

A native of San Antonio, TX, Bear is currently based in Los Angeles, CA, USA where he lives with his wife and collaborator, journalist Ruxandra Guidi, and their daughter. Guidi and Guerra often work together under the name Fonografia Collective to produce local and international print, radio, and multimedia stories about human rights and social justice. Bear is also a board member and producer with the award-winning non-profit journalism collaborative, Homelands Productions.

During 2016-2017, Bear (and Ruxandra) completed a year-long, multi-platform collaboration with Los Angeles' KCRW public radio station. Going Gray in LA: Stories of Aging Along Broadway. The project was funded by the Eisner Foundation, and is an intimate look at the lives of elders as they confront the challenges of aging in the big city. The exhibition continues to travel throughout the Los Angeles area.

South of Fletcher Podcast – Clockshop
"This podcast explores the past, present and potential of the Bowtie parcel. Once one of Southern California’s most important rail yards, this site will soon become the next urban California State Park, joining a patchwork of other river-adjacent green spaces that are shaping the course of LA River revitalization. Through personal interviews with people who have worked, lived and otherwise made their marks at this post-industrial site, Fonografia Collective explores some of LA’s biggest challenges, and speculates about what change at this site might mean for the rest of the city.

Subscribe to Clockshop’s iTunes channel to automatically receive new episodes when they become available.

Written and co-produced by Ruxandra Guidi

South of Fletcher: Stories from the Bowtie
Fonografia Collective, 2018

South of Fletcher: Stories from the Bowtie is a multi-platform storytelling project by Fonografia Collective, produced by Clockshop.

Once one of Southern California’s most important rail yards, the Bowtie is now an open site overlooking a lush stretch of the Glendale Narrows, where plants sprout up from building remains, and migratory birds glide gently across the nearby river’s surface. California State Parks purchased this plot of land in 2003, and Clockshop has been producing programming at the site since 2014. But outside of these official uses, the Bowtie has a life, and a dedicated following, of its own.

Ruxandra Guidi and Bear Guerra of Fonografia Collective have been working at the Bowtie for the past year, talking to people who frequent the site, and learning more about its historic, present day, and potential uses. Through their research, they’ve uncovered that some of Los Angeles’s biggest issues — the housing crisis, lack of open space, effects of climate change, and forces of urban development — come to a head at this unique piece of land next to the LA River. South of Fletcher: Stories from the Bowtie will present their findings through a podcast series, three public discussions, and a photography exhibition.

In partnership with Oxy Arts, major themes from this project will be woven into Occidental College’s CORE Program for incoming freshmen, complementing the South of Fletcher photo exhibition that will take place at Occidental’s Weingart Gallery September 13 – November 4.

Our biweekly South of Fletcher podcast launches September 10."]

Darkness in The Sunshine State • Alex Webb • Magnum Photos
I often find something a little ominous in Florida. Some kind of trouble or—at the very least, uncertainty—seems to lie just below the surface. Perhaps it’s because many come to Florida in search of youth, sex, sun, or, for immigrants, some version of the American Dream. And most are woefully disappointed.

Aperture: You Must Live and Look
Very often you don’t have to see a photographer’s pictures. Just by watching him in the street you can see what kind of photographer he is. Discreet, on tiptoes, fast, or like a machine gun? Well, you don’t shoot partridges with a machine gun. You choose one partridge. Then another partridge. Maybe the others are gone by then.
