In a photography career spanning five decades, Anthony Hernandez has used his camera and careful observation to explore the world in an effort to better understand it. He began making street photography, inspired by photographers such as Garry Winogrand, Lee Friedlander, and Robert Frank.
By the mid-80s, Hernandez shifted his focus to more formal, minimal and often tightly cropped compositions that depict overlooked elements of the urban or suburban landscape while subtly engaging with aspects of the human condition.
These later photographs of subjects such as homelessness, abandoned buildings and sites rarely include people but rather concentrate on the traces we leave behind. The city of Los Angeles, its landscape, character and people has been one of his greatest inspirations.
Hernandez currently lives and works between Los Angeles and Idaho.
Doors open at 6:30 pm.
Tickets are $5 for students, DAM members, and CPAC members, $12 for general admission.
