As the 20th anniversary of the Los Angeles Riots approaches, photojournalist Ted Soqui and Glynn Martin, Executive Director of the Los Angeles Police Historical Society, will present and discuss Soqui’s harrowing images of the civil unrest. Taken primarily between April 29 and May 5, 1992, they include photos of rioting and looting; aftermath images of damaged structures; and street portraits of residents, police, National Guardsmen, and Rodney King. Soqui will also show photos from a before-and-after project, in which he revisits several sites and re-photographs them with approximately the same lens and point of view.
Parking is available at 524 S. Flower St. Garage (show your LAPL library card at the Central Library’s information desk to receive a validation for reduced rates). Handicap accessibility available.
