During the past thirty-plus years, Gary Leonard has photographed the streets and neighborhoods of Los Angeles, recording the famous and not so famous as they navigate the currents of life in Southern California. He has come to be an integral part of the fabric of the city, documenting and reflecting our triumphs and ordinariness, our characters and landscapes. Gary will present images from throughout his career, including his high school class panoramic photo (where he appears twice), shots from L.A.’s punk rock scene, and favorites from his photo-column, Take My Picture Gary Leonard. Kevin Roderick of will coax the stories out of Gary. After the presentation, he will take a picture of the audience.
Presented by Photo Friends and the Los Angeles Public Library Photo Collection.
