Angeleno Heart

Stories from the streets of Los Angeles

Angeleno Heart was started with the thought of capturing pictures and telling a story.


“Los Angeles has so many untold stories. I set out to hunt and capture them one at a time. I was born and raised in L.A, and it’s a city that in my eyes will be better understood; once you read these little packaged stories that make up this great city. I hope you enjoy them.”

– Henry Lara, Photographer/Writer, Angeleno Heart
