Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs’ Henry P. Rio Bridge Gallery at City Hall Presents ‘LA Through Their Lens: Perspectives from the Street’

Online only

There are an estimated 41,000 members in our city who are currently un-housed, a 14% increase from the previous year. Inspired by an exhibition at the Paris City Hall in 2015, this exhibition is organized by a recent graduate of the Los Angeles Mayors Youth Council, Ethan Hodess, in hopes to build connections between those who have homes, and those without.

A select group of homeless participants were identified by our partner organizations and given disposable cameras to chronicle their experience of Los Angeles, The photos in this collection were selected from over 300 entries by twelve photographers, and were thoughtfully curated with the help of Los Angeles photographer Matt Sayles.

These images allow us to catch a glimpse of the lives of the talented men and women behind the cameras. They present us with views of the city that at times reflect a sense of solitude and isolation, but at other times capture moments of joy and hope. We are reminded that the photographers, and many more like them, are creative, perceptive and interesting people who deserve to be treated with dignity and respect.

A Look Back: Mapping Another LA: The Chicano Art Movement

This archived exhibition explores the 1970’s Chicano art movement in East Los Angeles. With the establishment of the first Chicano art gallery in East Los Angeles, Chicano artists initiated a collective reimagining the urban landscape through such media as photography, graphic arts, murals, painting, and sculpture. These artists mapped another L.A., harnessing their work as part of a social protest and community empowerment movement.
