Anthony Hernandez

Anthony Hernandez was raised in East LA’s Aliso Village public housing project, where he began taking his first photographs with his family’s box camera.  Hernandez’s interest in urban decay was evident even at a young age- his subject matter consisting primarily of forgotten auto parts and images of his dilapidated neighborhood.

In his early career, Hernandez focused on street portraiture; however, after the mid-1980s his style changed from wide shots to tighter framing, from black-and-white to color, from people to places.

His recent work focuses on the overlooked, through examining subjects such as homeless shelters and deteriorating buildings.
