Students Capture the L.A. River on Film

Support Provided By

During a recent trip to the L.A. River, Youth Voices student producers from the Los Angeles River School and The Los Angeles Leadership Academy were given disposable film cameras to document their experience. In a world dominated by the digital image, it is refreshing to see the L.A. River on film. Even more interesting, however, is to be able to see this magical place from the student's perspectives. The following images are some of the best images captured that day. Enjoy!
