Oceanside Unfiltered is a street photography exhibition showcasing local photographers.

The selected photos showcase a candid and truly unfiltered view of Oceanside, focusing on places and individuals that often go unnoticed. The photographers featured come from various walks of life and have all called Oceanside home at one time or another. The images chosen are not your standard pier and sunset photos. They are gritty and reflect a side of Oceanside that the influx of tourists doesn’t see. They evoke emotion and may surprise you.

This eye-opening exhibition is curated by notable Oceanside photographer, Zach Cordner. Cordner has been a resident of Oceanside for over twenty years. He has spent the time documenting Oceanside throughout its interesting evolution. This has given him crucial insight and access into unseen aspects of the city.

Cordner has spent his career photographing some of the most recognizable celebrities, brands and magazines including Tony Hawk, Jimmy Kimmel, Capitol Records, Vans, The Hundreds and Rolling Stone magazine. Today, Cordner stays connected to the North County community through his work with The Osider and Encinitas Magazine, where he is co-founder and oversees all photography content.

This exhibition highlights the work of some of Oceanside’s best photographers, including work from Cordner along with 2thabrain, Dominic Cooley, Sergio Garcia, Robby Gogatz, Trevor J, Charlie Neuman, Jens Ochlich, Brookes Reeder, Cameron Reeder, JT Rhoades, Edna Navarrete, Adam Ruzzamenti, David Stoddard, Jordan Verdin, and  Andres Ximenez.
