LAPD Chief Charlie Beck and L.A. Sculptor Victor Hugo Zayas discuss the project "Turning Violence Into Art." Zayas created sculptures like the one at right that were made from pieces of ground up guns collected in an LAPD buy back program. The sculptures were displayed at the Laguna Art Museum and garnered world wide media attention. I photographed the entire process from gun collection by the LAPD Swat Unit, to guns being ground, delivered to Zayas and the sculpture creation. 15 of my images were displayed in the Laguna Art Museum catalog and several images were displayed in the museum.
