When the lights go down: Sacramento’s new street photographers cover the city
A group of young photographers from Sacramento are setting up shop in San Francisco’s Mission District to showcase the city’s emerging street photography scene.
For this project, they will take photos of everything from the bustling streets of downtown Sacramento to the gritty streets of Mission, and in between.
They’re also taking photos of every corner of the city, from its streets to its streetside.
“We’re just excited to be in the Mission, which is just a really diverse, diverse place,” said Nikki Catsura, 23, an artist who graduated from California State University, Chico in 2015.
“It’s so beautiful and it’s really different.”
The new group is called Photo the Movie, and it plans to take shots on and off the streets of the Mission District, with locations in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Oakland, New York City and San Diego.
Catsura said that, unlike her own photography, she’s interested in showing people what Sacramento can look like without a lot of people, or people who don’t really understand what the city is about.
“It’s really important to show people that you can still see the beautiful beauty of the San Francisco Bay,” she said.
Photos will be uploaded to the new website, Photo the Movies, and then uploaded to Flickr.CATSURA’S NEW ROLEThe group of street photographers is hoping to inspire more people to take photos and showcase the diversity of the City of Angels.

— In the fall of 2015, Catzura and her friends were sitting around a table in a small restaurant in the downtown Mission District.
They had just returned from San Francisco and were feeling overwhelmed.
“Everyone was so happy,” she recalled.
“People were telling me that it was the best thing they’ve ever done in their life, and that it would forever change their lives.”
They were right, Catsura had no idea how.
But her experience at the Mission had given her a new appreciation for what she calls the city she loves.
“In the Mission there is so much that I can see in the streets that I didn’t know was there,” she continued.
“I see the same sights as everyone else, and I see it with my own eyes.”
For Catzora, the Mission was the perfect place to start her photography career.
“The Mission is the perfect spot because it’s a little bit like a neighborhood,” she explained.
“You can see what people are doing, and you can go out and see what the people are experiencing.”
