Architectural photographer Lane Barden unveils a Los Angeles River many Angelenos have yet to see -- a river seen from above.

Participants in this month's Drop-in Community Story Lab were invited to explore, meander, and get lost in the community on a Photo DeTour around Venice.
Participants shared their own definitions and examples of the word "community," and create photographic works based on these shared ideas using found photography and embroidery.
Venice Arts' Community Story Lab ventured out together for their first group shoot around Venice and gathered photographs that could help shape how they envision their "community."
The workshops expand access for underserved adults to photography, filmmaking, and media arts as tools for engaged community storytelling.
