Series Proposal

Tentative Series Name: Little Tokyo

Idea:For this series I want to focus on Little Tokyo Historic District, in Downtown Los Angeles.

How will you execute idea? I plan to focus on capturing the environment and culture and lifestyle of the district, and encourage people to visit this location.

Why is this topic important to you? What do you want other people to understand? What do you hope this series will accomplish?

I want to focus on this topic, because I love going to this district, just to relax and hangout with friends and experience the different culture and setting Little Tokyo offers. I also want people to come here and see the District and experience it for themselves.

Any special conditions, equipment, or techniques needed?

I plan for these images to be fairly straight forward but may need a reflector and maybe even a tripod just to focus more on shooting people and the districts social events.

Output Method and Size: For the series I plan on using 11x 17 in. prints.
