LA Souls: Opening This Week at Lost Souls

LA Souls LA Souls is a photo exhibition that will be running at Lost Souls Cafe from now until October 15th. The opening reception will be during tomorrow's Downtown Art Walk. It's all about photos of Downtown, so the topic is near and dear to me. From the release:

Downtown newspapers, and now recently community blogs, gather visual documentation of Los Angeles to create an intimate view of Downtown. "LA Souls: Portraits of Los Angeles in its 224th year" is an exhibit that brings photographers who explore Los Angeles on foot and together share images to celebrate a city's 225th birthday. The most photogenic city in the world has photographers living, working or simply shooting Downtown with an intimate POV to form a dialog of people and place. Without exploiting myth, they gathered evidence of a city and by chance present a community as art.

During the opening and closing receptions they'll be projecting random shots from the blogdowntown flickr pool. Ed Fuentes (of View From a Loft) came to me a couple weeks ago and asked if I'd be cool with doing that and I was quick to say yes. I think the pool really reflects the vision of what the show's trying to do and I'm glad to be a part of it.
