Latest Cover for LA Weekly

Photographed a portrait of Tyree Dabney for the latest cover of LA Weekly.
The story is about redemption in California's parole system and the Anti-Recidivism Coalition, it is written by Jason McGahan.

Just found out yesterday that the LA Weekly was sold to some unknown entity. No official word was given about the paper's future yet. Hopefully this won't be my final cover and contribution to such an amazing publication.

It's been a long mighty run so far.

LA Death Star

The Renzo Piano Building is under construction at Fairfax near Wilshire Blvd. It will house a new theatre for the Academy of Motion Picture and Sciences Complex at that location. The new building resembles a "Death Star" from the film Star Wars, not sure how intentional that was.
Will be a truly fascinating structure when completed, hopefully Darth will be pleased.
