i just wanted to share my story.
Im a los angeles based photographer who’s been working on an artist portrait series that includes designers, painters, street artists, film makers and architects. I was arrested in feb while documenting 2 graffiti artists painting in south central. I was in jail for a little over 24 hours and they took all my photo equipment into “evidence”. Initially I was being charged Felony Vandalism, but after a few weeks it was reduced to a misdemeanor but am still dealing with it. I couldnt afford a private attorney so Im going with the public defender.
