When I Think of Home: Images from L.A. ArchivesMain MenuIntroductionThe greater Los Angeles area is on the traditional lands of the Gabrielino/Tongva, Chumash, Fernandeño Tataviam and Yuhaaviatam/Maarenga’yam (Serrano) peoples. We acknowledge their presence here since time immemorial and recognize their continuing connection to the land, to the water and to their ancestors.L.A.

Her work highlights one of many liquor stores in the area, that make alcohol and drugs easily accessible. Downtown’s skyscrapers, nightlife, art scene, all presenting gentrification, encroach upon neighborhood residents. However, images of Olmec heads and people evolving from nopales, symbolize pride and strength despite attempts of displacement.plain2020-10-14T13:51:30-07:002018Self Help Graphics & ArtIn Copyright -- Educational Use -This Item is protected by copyright and/or related rights.

Stevens-Gandara draws parallels between the historical accounts and testimonies of the Chavez Ravine community’s displacement and the present issue of gentrification and displacement facing communities everywhere.plain2020-10-11T19:13:18-07:002016Self Help Graphics & ArtIn Copyright - Educational Use Permitted (This Rights Statement can be used only for copyrighted Items for which the organization making the Item available is the rights-holder or has been explicitly authorized by the rights-holder(s) to allow third parties to use their Work(s) for educational purposes without first obtaining permission.)Courtesy of Self Help Graphics & ArtLos Angeles, Calif.Miyo Stevens-GandaraStella Castillo3fcfe63ebb36641784421d25ab3a77ed9ea98855
