Photo Gallery Opens At Hall Of Administration

A photo gallery featuring dramatic scenic shots of Los Angeles County is officially open at the Kenneth Hahn Hall of Administration. The exhibit was formally unveiled recently at a brief ceremony conducted by Supervisor Don Knabe.

The photos by local photographer Stephen Coleman are in the hallway of the Third Floor of the county government headquarters, located at 500 West Temple Street in downtown Los Angeles. The gallery, which is the first of its kind at the Hall of Administration, is planned to be a permanent exhibit of local works highlighting the County. Coleman has agreed to loan 22 photos to the County for a year. The photos include ocean, desert, mountain and city scenes.

The gallery was created at the suggestion of Supervisor Knabe, who met Coleman as a television news cameraman and was impressed with his photographs. Stephen’s work is stunning and captures the beauty and diversity of our great county. The composition, colors, and angles of the photos are just incredible, said Supervisor Knabe.

Coleman said his love of photography began in high school when a teacher loaned him a camera. I fell in love with the joy of experiencing the world and capturing the world’s beauty and essence through the art of photography.
