David E. Williams


One year in the making, photographic offerings by Emmy-winning cinematographer John Simmons, ASC and students from Belmont High School in Los Angeles will be exhibited at the ArcLight Hollywood theater through November 8.

The exhibit features a fusion of Simmons' archival images from his days as a teen street photographer with selections from his current portfolio, including poignant captures showcasing the layers of childhood and family.

Simmons' photographs serve as a divine pairing with the students from Belmont High as they present their own images of the kids and teens of Los Angeles.

An artistic appearance in the ArcLight has a profound impact upon the students. "I felt voiceless before I started this program and now people can finally hear me," stated a graduate of the photo program that has served inner city teens for the past 10 years. "I just never expected them to hear me in the ArcLight."
