With all the new building and accompanying disruption of residents, the time has come for an update to Dana’s 2009 work, Mission Miracle Mile Trilogy.

As we revisit San Francisco’s Mission Street, we find the latest story told with a visual poem about a fire on Mission Street in the midst of a thick stream of traffic. The divergent range of humanity on Mission Street in San Francisco, the main artery of the Mission district, is displayed to tell the story of the clash of dreams and harsh reality using photo collage that integrates photographic imagery with proximity and transparency.

This updated look at the culture of the Mission District, in keeping with the time, is accompanied by a flash drive-based video version of the book (mounted on the back cover) that explores the sounds and motions of the Mission. Utilizing her unique and innovative bar and tonal collision editing style Smith pioneers the multi-platform approach in documenting her beloved neighborhood.

Part requiem, part celebration, Dana’s Tours is an evocative and provocative artwork.
