This event is part of the current Las Fotos Project exbhibit, City Rising. ⠀

City Rising presents the work of 14 teenage girls documenting changes in their neighborhoods and the complexities of gentrification in Boyle Heights and South Los Angeles.⠀

Both Boyle Heights and South Los Angeles have experienced an influx of new businesses and newcomers who are not only changing the urban landscape of these historic areas, but also are displacing culture, immigrants and communities of color.⠀

The images on this exhibit explore the similarities and differences between these two neighborhoods and the effect that these changes are having on the community.⠀
