In this week's video, Ibarionex discussed the importance of paying attention to the small details, especially juxtapositions between the subject and the background.

David Patrick Valera is a professional artist (photographer/digital-cinematographer/cameraman) based in Los Angeles. “I grew up in Silverlake, CA.” Not the Forbes Magazine hippest neighborhood known for an invasion of Teslas, horizontal wood fencing and lumber-sexuals, but the mid-city graffiti urban grit and grime it once was back in the 70’s-80’s.” A latch-key kid, David would jump on his BMX and ride down Sunset Blvd., slaloming around Hollywood street walkers, hair-bands, and the undesirables through the yet to be gentrified regions of Southern California. “Urban life is a part of my upbringing and I always wanted to document those unique, chance moments I came across during my neighborhood expeditions.”
