The MacArthur Park Project ~ Samuel Hernandez

In many ways MacArthur Park is the center of Los Angeles. Originally called Westlake, the park has lived many lives since being built in the 1880's, from "Champs-Élysées of Los Angeles" to port-of-entry neighborhood, and is in the process of changing yet again. Photographer Samuel Hernandez has been spending time in the park with his cameras, documenting the people who visit, pass through, play, and live there. There will be an exhibition coming this fall at Ventura County Museum of these photographs, which are a work in progress. Samuel visits the park regularly, "documenting people's lives one picture at a time." You can view more of the project, and Hernandez' work in general, on Behance. There's also an instagram.
