I recently returned from working on a project in Los Angeles for Magic Light Foundation - a non-profit production company based in CA. The company is currently producing a documentary film titled Plight of the Fisherman, chronicling the decline of the commercial fishing industry over the past 50 years or so. The film will also include still photographs documenting certain aspects of decline - Hurricane Katrina, economic fluxuations, etc. The director and producer of the film asked if I would photograph a segment focusing on the changing landscape of the San Pedro fishing industry, which I gladly accepted. Given the subject matter (decaying architecture and industrial waste) this assignment was right up my alley. And Jacquie (director) and Marco (producer) are about the most fun people I've ever worked with. Check out the trailer for the film and watch for it on PBS, Discovery Channel and film festivals in about a year.
