Archaic but Displaced

Description

Gentrification in the Mission District of San Francisco is an ongoing process. However, the social clashes it creates is as blatant as the striking differences one sees of the infrastructure on the streets. Yoga classes held next to a family-owned grocery store. Nicely-dressed "hipster" tourists passing by the run-down barber shop. These juxtapositions represent the struggles that native residents face as their neighborhood disappears before their eyes due to skyrocketing rent prices, decreasing wage labor, and increasing evictions.
