Watts Now 

 

The Watts photo series intends to take a closer look at the complex realities of Watts communities and instigate visual interest and curiosity to see the extraordinary in the ‘ordinary.’ The images also capture the young generation of Watts, who is determined to make a positive difference through direct engagement with their communities.

My photographs focus on four themes: People and the Community, the Neighborhoods, Historic Sites, and the Watts Towers.

My images, ranging from the poetic beauty of the Watts Towers to the spontaneous energy of the Watts bicycle groups, attempt to visually encapsulate the spirit of the Watts community.
