Los
Angeles—Celebrated photographer John C. Lewis’s stark panoramic
portrait of gardens outside the Grand
Palais
in Paris will be featured in City Hearts’ 4th Annual Fresh Focus Photo
Auction, November 1st at The Leica Gallery in West Hollywood. Dubbed
In the World All Things Are Two and Two,
Lewis’s moody, black & white masterpiece was captured on a bitter cold
December morning in 2003 using a century-old Kodak Panorama swing-lens camera.

Lewis’s
career in photography spans more than 30 years. His work is represented in
museum and institutional collections worldwide including the J. Paul Getty
Museum; The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; the Wittliff Collections and Kodak
Mexico. He has received honors and awards from Agfa, Calumet, Ilford Photo,
Fuji, UNESCO and the APA. His work has appeared editorially in B&W Magazine,
The Los Angeles Times, The Rangefinder and others. His photographs comprise a
refined blend of vintage and modern technique with a polished, narrative style
of storytelling.

many renowned commercial and fine art photographers, studio photographers and
celebrity photographers. They include Jeff Bridges, Doug Kirkland, Herb Ritts, Greg
Gorman, George Hurrell, Leigh Weiner, Eli Reed, Anthony Friedkin, Julia Dean,

About
City Hearts
CITY HEARTS: For over 30 years, www.cityhearts.org
programs have been that very special place for children to grow, experience the
Arts, and learn skills that help motivate and enhance school involvement,
community engagement, and a sense of caring and compassion for their local and
the global communities while encouraging and inspiring children to reach their
full potential. Founded in 1984 by Juvenile Court Public Defenders, Bob and
Sherry Jason, City Hearts has provided unique training and experiences in the
Arts to over 30,000 children since our inception. We believe that intervention
and prevention are key elements to nurturing our children to become creative,
compassionate and responsible young adults. 
City Hearts is Southern California’s pre-eminent Arts education outreach
organization.
Fresh Focus: A New Shot at Life, City
Hearts’ Photography program, encourages students to shoot with cameras – not
guns. “We teach our students to evaluate their lives and community with a
critical eye so that they may, in turn, educate others about their world and
tell their ‘story behind the shot’,” Jason explains.
