In our own backyard: photography by Rafael Cardenas


Rafael Cardenas, the Jalisco-born, Los Angeles-raised artist known for street photography, presents a selection of new works at the Vincent Price Art Museum in East Los Angeles. The works capture backyard scenes across the eastside of Los Angeles by Cardenas, who is widely recognized for his black and white photographs representing a cross section of urban life.

Backyard Tableaux features vivid color images that offer intimate moments in private, yet social spaces. Spanning images that range from tableaux to portraits and still lifes, Backyard Tableaux presents vignettes of backyard scenes and the people that activate them.
