I met artist Kevin Morgan in Venice Beach while on a photo shoot with the Bui Brothers. We gravitated toward his freestanding rock sculptures from far away wondering if they were people. Once in close range, we realized what they were and Kevin was kind enough to share the backstory.
He explained that the free standing stones represented the lives that were lost through drive-by shootings, ODs, and suicides on the Venice beach boardwalk. So far it's been a six year project that will continue as long as Kevin determines it needs to exist.
PS: Sorry about the wind. I only had my little Canon Powershot on me.
