If you happen to be watching public access in Long Beach this week you might see me taking snaps at the city council meeting. I was assigned to take some photos of a woman named Star Harris who was speaking at the meeting. She was assaulted 3 years ago at a 7-11 while in line and no one did anything.
Her mother was at the meeting and broke out into tears when Star recounted the events again.
After the meeting, I took some quick portraits outside of city hall. It was dark and I had to light it. Not too bad considering I shot it in 15 minutes.
