In April of 2020, I began photographing people sheltering in place. For the next 6 months, I zipped around the city’s empty freeways making environmental portraits of people I’ve met since arriving here 35 years ago. I photographed rabbis, rock stars, a deaf activist from Compton, a best-selling author, a Top Chef Masters TV personality, the president of KCRW, the chair of Amnesty International, a homeless woman who lives on Ballona Creek, and dozens of other wonderfully interesting and diverse Angelenos. This is a photo of Mikey A. He is a deaf activist.
