    Profiles of 50 South Bay Creatives.

     

    This is the third edition of our "Profiles" series, and it is one of my favorite issues because we get to pack it with our local creatives. Doing six issues a year just does not provide the space to feature all the people we admire in our community; the "Profiles" issue is to give breadth more than depth and to introduce you to people we think you should investigate. It is also dear to me because I make this issue my chance to photograph all the people featured, so you will only see photo credits where I did not personally take the photos. If I could, I would shoot all the images and do all the interviews in every issue, but that is not really possible nor does it further our mission of giving locals a platform to showcase their writing skills and develop their photography. But for this annual issue, I get a little selfish and shoot all the images, not only because I love photography, but also because I really like to meet new people and get to know their story. Even though the shoots can be short sometimes, I feel that these people are my friends, and so it is my pleasure to introduce to you a few of my friends in this issue. I hope you too get to know them and connect with them, like a good friend.


    Enjoy.

  • Art as Slow Change
    Activist art is on the rise, particularly in the last two years. While it used to be rare to have art institutions hosting activist exhibitions, they are now being shown across the country and in locations that even just a few years ago would have seemed improbable. Imagine a gallery or museum in a conservative southern town having an exhibition on the theme of racism or Black Lives Matter. The whirlwind of rhetoric and hyperbole from the current administration spewing xenophobia, misogyny, and racism has galvanized artists into action, bringing to light injustice and inequalities.
