In this beautiful book, photographer Ren Dodge examines people in their homes at Vulcan Studios aka Vulcan Lofts in East Oakland, California. A steel factory turned artists live-work space has spawned a vibrant community of artists, free thinkers and friends. The unique interior architecture and vivid personalities pose a compelling subject for documentary photography. Coupled with snippets of text written by the subjects, Vulcanites offers a portal into a not so often seen world of interesting individuals who shape the creative community in Oakland. Dodge was born Minneapolis, MN. His award winning artwork has been displayed at galleries, festivals, and art exhibits in Oakland and San Francisco. He is the principal at Ren Dodge Photography.
