Photographer Gary Leonard is no longer taking pictures for CityBeat — they cut him in November — but he has moved his collection of Los Angeles photos to a new gallery at 860 S. Broadway in Downtown. From Trade Talk, the California Apparel News blog:
At the gallery is Leonard’s candid shot of iconic artist Keith Haring working with a model at a Los Angeles fashion show in 1986. Another is former President Richard Nixon politely applauding remarks made by former Soviet Premier Leonid Brezhnev in San Clemente, Calif. in 1973. There are pictures of punk-rock luminary Darby Crash. (Leonard was one of the main chroniclers of the Los Angeles punk scene of the late 1970s.) The gallery offers a colorful picture of the gala, fireworks debut of Los Angeles landmark Walt Disney Hall, the construction of Staples Center, and there are hundreds of portraits of Los Angelenos doing everything from walking down the street to streaking down the street.
The gallery is called Take My Picture, Gary Leonard. Here's his website.
