Ian in Havana, Cuba

Ian Wood

I was born, raised, and live in Berkeley, California. One day in mid-2016 I was walking my dog around the neighborhood and, in an effort to keep myself entertained while on these walks due to my dog's poor conversation skills, challenged myself to find interesting sights. I started noticing all types of garages and decided to document them. Since then I've found over 400 garages that are just a little "different." Some are crumbling, some are painted over in colorful murals, some are drowning in lush ivy. All say "Berkeley" in their own way. 

Also, as a true Berkeleyan I value my neighbors and believe all are welcome. I have therefore put together a few pages showcasing just some of the wonderful garages of Berkeley's neighboring cities. Enjoy!

Berkeley and Beyond! 

This garage photo project has gotten some fun coverage locally (QuirkyBerkeley and Berkeleyside) as well as some 'shout-outs' from around the globe (EnglandThe NetherlandsIndia and Italy). Now our garages have a global audience!
