Since 2012, KCET has been featuring the work of journalist and filmmaker Joris Debeij through Departures, the station's interactive documentary project about the social history of Los Angeles. "I Am Los Angeles" is Debeij's portrait series that showcases the unique people and their ideas that make L.A. what it is. "SoCal Connected" will continue featuring his work on air.
Photographer Gregory Bojorquez has embarked on a journey to capture the sights, smells, and sounds of L.A.'s eastside -- from raging backyard parties and homeless people to self-portraits and tattoos.
His goal? To find and shoot "slice of life moments" that are often overlooked.
