Grab your lunch and join us as photographer Kevin McCollister presents images from his project East of West LA. According to McCollister “East of West LA, is an ongoing project of which my book, East of West LA, is but the first installment. Without quite realizing it, I’ve taken on the task of refuting the exhausted caricature of Los Angeles as a city of laid-back pleasure-seekers with photographs of Hispanic grandmothers, bridges over the sluggish L.A. River, neon apartment signs, storefront churches and more. East of West LA is now in its eighth year, producing more than a hundred images a year. What started off as a whim has grown into a serious commitment resulting in gallery shows, widespread Internet coverage and my aforementioned book, East of West LA. I should also I add I genuinely enjoy and feel very fortunate to be involved in this project."
