Reflejos y Regalos de East Los: The Faces of East Los Angeles
East LA’s Self Help Graphics teamed up with photographer Rafael Cardenas for a very special project: A picture day for the residents of Boyle Heights, home to one of the largest Mexican communities in the United States.
"Reflejos y Regalos de East Los captures the Boyle Heights/East Los Angeles community through impromptu portraits of current community members and the creation of specific public installations at each of the locations," states SHG’s website.
The photo shoot took place at three Boyle Heights locations: Mariachi Plaza, the Lou Costello Recreation Center, and Hollenbeck Park.
