Lisa Kanemoto devotes her passion to the homeless of Pacific Beach, while she completes Final Season of my Life, reflecting on experiences. Concerned with social justice she has been documenting stigmatized groups such as the mentally ill, drug addicts, ethnic minorities, gays, the homeless and needy. In 1984 she published We Are, a documentary monograph about San Francisco's gay community. The project Against all Odds became a travel exhibition, it focuses on the stigma attached to mental illness. Dark Mirror was published in 1997. It is her self- analysis in photographs, surveying her life.
A verse play “Lisa’s Dark Mirrors” is produced by the poet Stephen Tuba.
Her work has been exhibited and collected internationally.
