Hella Damn Squirrels: We live on the banks of Lake Merritt, Oakland, and we rule with fat and fuzzy fists.


Image of exhibit

Born from a love of shooting rodents, Hella Damn Squirrels has amassed a collection of photographs comprised exclusively of the squirrels residing around Lake Merritt.  Since 2011, our furry little pals' demands have evolved from begging for walnuts, to insisting we build their own Facebook page and now they've escaped the gardens at Lake Merritt and have wriggled their way into a photo exhibit at the Lakeshore Library. 

Hella Damn Squirrels is Jennifer Hale, a professional photographer (RI School of Design) and Tony Toppano, a semi-professional squirrel wrangler (self-taught). We shoot photos of the rodents and since we are able to read their minds, we often create quotes based on their thoughts at that time.
