Click to preview Carnaval 2010! San Francisco photo book

San Francisco’s Carnaval celebration was initiated in Precita Park 32 years ago by its multicultural and multiethnic founders who dearly missed traditional Carnaval celebrations in their respective home countries. Musicians, dancers, artists and a host of local residents continue today to join together in San Francisco’s Mission District to create a rich fantastical day long tapestry woven throughout what must be one of America’s most colorful and joyful parades.
Carnaval 2010! San Francisco is another journal in a series documenting photographer Michael Morrissey’s odyssey around the world, into the heart, and through the lens of special times, places and those who inhabit them.


About the Author

Spirit House Productions
mjmorrissey San Francsico

Born in the United States, Michael Morrissey was initially drawn to Paris in the early 1970’s. Trekking to Katmandu, he found himself driving the Magic Bus with an increasing involvement in photography as a way of capturing, in an instant, that which could never be explained in words. As a landscape architect, and master-of many-trades, Michael lived and worked in Brunei, Malaysia, Taiwan, Thailand and Japan, where he co-founded Refugees International. In Thailand he worked with the UNHCR developing refugee camps. After creating several real estate management companies based in Bangkok, Mike focused his passions: travel and photography. An inveterate global traveler with a penchant for discovering off- the-beaten paths, he has experienced moments of terror and peace, sadness touched by joy, acquiring a deep awareness of the connectedness present among all people and cultures and a deep respect for the poignant, majestic yet fragile natural world.
