An article about a photographer without even one photo? I guess I shouldn't complain since I don't pay for the luxury of reading the paper.

Nice photos of a great local industry that we support with our dining dollars.

They are all legal aren't they?

ICE want to check please?

Those are jobs that citizens used to do and still can do at the prices that they charge for oysters.

Whatever, not even close to being an artist, not living off my Daddy's money, just wishing that EVERYTHING posted here somehow didn't have to be a racist pissing match!!!! I've NEVER seen a latino standing on a corner with a sign begging for money - Only standing on a corner begging to work!!!Don't get me started on the Unemployeed thing!!!

Umm, OK Lisa.....are You done now?
Alright, grab a seat and set a spell, and hear the facts.
The Mexican Guy that's been working there for over 2 decades is a legal Resident-Citizen, and his Son dates Lunny's Daughter, probably married by now, it's been a few years..
For the rest of the Workers, They're basically all illegals, with the exception of maybe the delivery Driver.
Hete to break it to You lisa, but it's 100% factual.

Point taken, over and over again. Just saying why does EVERYTHING come to be a racist thing - Don't you guys have something else to do? Peace out bunny Boy you guys rant on with each other about the latinos. Don't come to Pt Reyes cuz the place is crawling with those little buggers...Preach peace

"Be quiet please!!!!Just enjoy some art without your racist comments."

"Evvy Eisen, who spent 15 years photographing Holocaust survivors, has tackled a 60-portrait essay of workers at Drake s Bay Oyster Co., on display at Dominican University in San Rafael..."

This isn't "art", it's political propaganda designed to help weaken the dominant culture of our country so as to prevent any future holocaust in the minds of the 'artist' and the other illogical inventors of multiculturalism.

True art is being able to create something beautiful universal and long lasting after study, years of practice and apprenticeship, not snapping some pictures on a camera and making expensive prints with your trust fund money.

I appreciate the photography and the photographers perspective. I know friends that now barely can be in the same room with each other because they sit on different sides of this issue. Is this really much ado about nothing? Does it really matter one way or another if Kevin stays or goes. I am so perplexed at the depth of the rage mostly from those that oppose Kevin. I say get a life to all you do gooders who can't seem to find anything better to do with your time. Go clean up the oil spill in the Gulf. Help feed the hungry. Do something valuable with your energy. Hey I have an idea how about starting a new West Marin newspaper?

OH how I remember driving from Southern Marin with a bag of charcoal, loaf of Bordenave's or Boudin, some Anchor Steam, butter, cockail sauce, oyster knife and mit.
We would stop at Drakes Bay and buy our oysters and then drive out to Drakes Beach and have an oyster cook out.
