No offense San Francisco, but I love Oakland. Every so often I hop on BART to visit friends and colleagues, ultimately thinking…damn, I want to live here. Just a few days ago, I brought an NY -> SF transplant to Oakland for the first time. He was taken aback, “This places oozes of style. People here are so damn fresh…”
A few months back at Oakland ‘s First Fridays/Art Murmur, I was fortunate enough to meet a new group of folks “documenting and featuring the style of creative people.” With a discerning eye, they scout for and highlight amazing backdrops, people, and moments with their photo shoots.
Part art project and part movement, they explain in their bio, “[w}ith our roots in Oakland, we are truly inspired by the style that exists here of authentic self-expression, diversity and creativity. We know that this perspective is of great value to the global conversation of fashion and beauty.”

Sometimes you find talented people by seeking them out. And in other cases it happens through sheer dumb luck. Okay, maybe it isn't dumb luck. Perhaps cliches like "the law of attraction," or "great minds think alike," or "birds of a feather flock together" actually hold true.
Such is the case with Karim Davis, aka P Is For Props, the official photographer for Society Experiment 01 • Maiden Voyage. I was fortunate enough to meet this Angelino - via Brooklyn via Ohio - at the original SFNY Yacht Party (or was it one of the long and foggy nights at JP's?!). Our friendship is a result of one of those cliches, where the right things fall into place at the right time.
Since we've met, I've witnessed Karim humbly capture the glory and charm of his surroundings, with his photos appearing in such publications as SF Weekly, LA Weekly, Fader, Spin, and his own site pisforprops.com
To me, he doesn't just snap pictures of a party. Karim is able to freeze a moment in life like a magician, making sure the best time you had all day/week/month/year will forever be preserved as a screensaver or a facebook profile picture, etc. And just like an illusionist, he brings something out of those seemingly "whatever moments" that you may not have noticed at the time. - Patrick "King Most"
