Sarah Anthony, Robyn Pottorff, and Sheila Dianne Jackson, Same Cities Los Angeles

The logo for Same Cities, whereby "same" is written in an ombre green-yellow color and "cities" is in black.

Photographs allow us to explore the unknown and to gain insight into people and places we think we know so well. In Los Angeles, California, Sarah Anthony, Robyn Pottorff and Sheila Dianne Jackson have created Same Cities, a traveling street photography and community empowerment project designed to create happier, healthier, safer and more inclusive communities. The exhibition will house photographs from twenty-five neighborhoods that provide historical context, socio-economic facts and engagement opportunities. Money raised by Same Cities goes to fund community projects in the areas of food justice, education and neighborhood beautification.
