Congrats to our friends over at Genesis LA who just launched their new website as part of their rebranding. The new digital digs look great!

Genesis LA is a community development financial institution whose mission is ‘to deliver financial solutions that advance economic and social opportunities in underserved communities.’

I had the pleasure of working with Genesis LA recently to photograph some of their most successful projects including the Sheenway School in Watts, Jovenes Inc.’s ‘My Home, Mi Casa’ in Boyle Heights and The Wright Road care center in South Los Angeles.
To learn more about Genesis LA visit their new website here.

The afternoon I spent with the Sheenway School, captured in the photos below, was a true delight.  Executive Director Dolores Sheen, better known as “Aunt D”, is the beating heart of this learning center, operating the Sheenway educational programs for decades.  Her energy and passion is unparalleled.  In a few short hours I had the privilege of observing Aunt D conduct lessons on Irish fables and embryology of chicken eggs, and watched the students tend to their daily animal husbandry duties.

Part of the joy in being introduced to organizations like Genesis LA and Sheenway is to learn about all the good work being done throughout Los Angeles.
