3 Questions with Judy Fiskin

June 26, 2014

Why L.A.? Why did you choose to work in this city in particular?

I grew up in L.A. and only started thinking about it as a place when I went 30 miles away to Claremont, to college. Three or four years after graduation, when I began to photograph, I was still thinking about it, and it became one of my main subjects. And it has been ever since.

How has your time in L.A. shaped your work?

It has been an unendingly interesting place to photograph.

Favorite place in L.A. Go.

Any canyon with a waterside woodland, like Corral Canyon, north of Malibu.

Judy Fiskin screens three of her films that explore art and the places we find it on Tuesday, July 1 at 7:30PM.
