October 14th, 2013

Episode 245 of 422 episodes

Kevin McCollister is a Los Angeles based photographer who has been sharing images on his blog East of West LA since 2006. In his blog and his book by the same title, he explores parts of the city of Angeles not frequently explored in film and television. His photographs of Los Angeles, reveal the mash-up up the past and the present with images that often reflect how buildings and spaces have been continually adapted with each generation of Angelenos, particularly immigrants. His night photographs reveal a Los Angeles which seems virtually abandoned upon nightfall, but which still reveal glimpses of the people and the communities that work and exist there during daylight hours. Born in Ohio, McCollister worked as a deckhand on the Mississippi River for several years after which he lived in Cambridge, MA where he attended Harvard University Extension School. He has lived in Los Angeles longer than he has lived in any other city. http://jimsonweed.blogspot.com/ http://www.manuelalvarezbravo.org/ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lola_Alvarez_Bravo http://www.modotti.com/ www.thecandidframe.com [email protected]
