Senior Portraits

Organization and community: Little Tokyo Service Center (Los Angeles, CA)

In honor of Senior Appreciation Day 2016, +LAB collaborated with Little Tokyo Service Center’s Social Services and Community Organizing departments as well as Las Fotos Project, a non-profit, community-based photography program whose mission is to bring about positive change for teenage girls facing adversity, to interview and photograph seniors living in Little Tokyo. These portraits were exhibited as part of the Takachizu project and featured as part of local radio station KCRW’s “Going Gray in LA” series, which maps stories of aging through an 18-mile stretch of working class neighborhoods in East and South Los Angeles.
