The concept for this iteration of You Are Here is a tribute to the police of Los Angeles. LAPD. More than 30 photographers from around the world and Los Angeles area will be participating in this month long event. Between now and February 14th the photographers who have been chosen to take part in this experiment will be attempting to capture their personal vision of this prestigious/infamous arm of the law.
I hope that if you’re in the LA area come February 14th I’ll see you at this incredibly interesting event’s unveiling. Many artists will be present and some prints will be available for purchase at the gallery. You also get the chance to go on a photo-walk with all the present and participating talent.
If you want to play a part in this expression of respect and tribute to the role that law enforcement plays in all our lives, please participate in the Instagram campaign by tagging your law enforcement photos with #shootacop. And please remember we’re not obstructing or interfering with the job these protectors of the law are tasked with, merely documenting and interpreting . Can’t wait to see what everyone produces in the days to come.
Look forward to seeing you all there!
