Michael Alvarez grew up in the El Sereno neighborhood of Los Angeles, California, immersed in skateboard and graffiti culture. Through his work, Alvarez chronicles the world as he sees it. His images are incredibly familiar—they are places we see every day and people we know well, captured in a style all Alvarez’s own.
