Public Underwater Photo Shoot in East LA

Sonia Romero was awarded a commission by the Los Angeles County Arts Commission to create public art for an upcoming project at Belvedere Park in East Los Angeles. The artwork will adorn the entry building of an Olympic sized pool which is currently under construction. To begin the public art process, Sonia Romero and the Arts Commission put out a public call for volunteer models in the surrounding East Los Angeles neighborhood. The photos from this underwater shoot will be used by the artist as inspiration for her artwork. See the results of the shoot below. Photography by Rafael Cardenas
