Heritage Square Museum

These photos were from a roll of film that sat in my freezer for over two years. I finally got around to mix up the Unicolor C-41 kit that I bought a year ago and process a few rolls of film.

The Heritage Square Museum is home to Victorian era buildings that were saved from demolition. 

All photos were taken with an Olympus XA and expired Kodak Hawkeye Surveillance film

2016 | Guillermo del Toro Exhibit at the LACMA

A few months ago, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art held the Guillermo del Toro: At Home with Monsters exhibition. The items on display included his notebooks, drawings, paintings, film stills, and maquettes. The exhibit ran for a few months, but I only went to see it on its last day. It was crowded but was still fun. I spent about 90 minutes going around the exhibition floor, exploring the the different themes (e.g. death and afterlife, magic, monsters) and learning about del Toro’s inspirations and creative process.

All photos were taken with a Leica M6 /Canon LTM 50/1.4  on Arista Premium 400 (pushed to 1600)

2016 | Arts District Walk Highlights

One afternoon in October I spent an afternoon walking around the Arts Districts. It was a nice day to be out and I had a great time taking photos and looking at murals and different public art found throughout the area.

2016 | The Broad

The Broad is a contemporary museum located in Downtown Los Angeles. A few months ago, I had the chance to visit the museum and see some of their galleries. I did not get to  experience Yayoi Kusama’s Infinity Mirrored Room, by the time I arrived at the museum there were already over 100 people on the waiting list for Kusama’s installation. I still had a great time taking photos and walking around the museum.
