The exhibit at the Los Angeles Center for Photography is the culmination of work by Los Angeles-area high school students and professional visual storytellers. AfroLA, a nonprofit news outlet covering L.A. through the lens of the Black community, partnered with Black Women Photographers to produce an immersive art exhibition focused on the intersection of environmental and racial justice.

Pairs of BWP photographers and Da Vinci Communications High School’s multimedia journalism students interviewed residents from predominantly Black and Latine communities, including Inglewood, Leimert Park and Wilmington. They also spoke with community advocates, researchers and experts whose work centers mitigating environmental harms, past and present.

The interviews were produced as “mini-podcasts” by the students that will be accessible at the exhibit via QR codes displayed alongside the artwork. What is it like to live near warehouses that reroute industrial traffic through your neighborhood? What adjustments do residents have to make to deal with contaminated water or poor air quality that results in chronic illness? What’s it like to live next door to an oil field? Attendees will be able to see and hear how residents—especially those in historically-marginalized communities—live day to day.
