When you walk or drive around the Boyle Heights hood in LA, you see youths everywhere embracing Punk and Metal. Since the 70’s, Latinos and Latinas have been at the forefront of the L.A. scene. In 2014, one of my favorite photographers ANGELA BOATWRIGHT put out a stellar zine focusing on the East L.A. backyard punk scene entitled East Los. It’s way beyond awesome to see someone I respect behind the lens capturing youth culture in such an honest way. Get all of the details about Angela’s zine below, and you can still get copies of it HERE.
28 page, 8″x10″ professionally printed booklet, saddle stitch, staple bound, printed on 80 lb. opaque paper w/ 100 lb. cover. Absolutely gorgeous, full-bleed and limited to a quantity of 200, all hand numbered.
Featuring photographs by Angela Boatwright, all images were shot on both 35mm and 120mm film and taken during the creation of her episodic doc series, ‘East Los’ for Vans #livingoffthewall.
All proceeds from the sale of this zine go to ‘Las Fotos Project‘, a non-profit organization based in Boyle Heights, Los Angeles, dedicated to empowering young girls through photography.
