Commemorating EARTH DAY 2016 and Month of Photography Los Angeles
Avenue 50 Studio is proud to present:
“Through The Eyes Of A Bus Rider”
a photography installation by Edward E. Solis
“Through The Eyes Of A Bus Rider,” is comprised of black & white and color photographs that document Solis’ travels on the MTA. The selected works were curated from thousands taken throughout Los Angeles and Orange Counties over the past decade. The exhibit is curated line-by-line to create geographical cohesion by displaying the photos precisely to the real life location of the gallery.
Southern California remains immersed in a predominantly car-based culture; however, as the MTA continues to expand services throughout the southland, many Angelenos are embracing a car-free lifestyle. Living without a car is ideal for anybody who wants to avoid the stresses associated with day-to-day rush hour commutes on the dreaded SoCal freeways.
Solis is a 41-year-old Angeleno, born in East Los Angeles and raised in Whittier CA. He is a 21-year music industry veteran who views public transportation as a chauffeured form of transport; Solis equates car-free with carefree. For the past ten years, Solis has single-handedly raised awareness of and promoted the car-free lifestyle across many communities and cultural environments. He sees himself as a global advocate for a carfree and eco-friendly lifestyle.
