More Azteca Theater as photographic model

Here is another image that caught the lens of a photographer. This time, Luis  Sinco collection of outtakes from his photo shoots.

The exterior of the Azteca Theater in the historic Chinatown district of downtown Fresno.
The Los Angeles Times called it the "defunct" Azteca Theater, which was not really accurate.  At this time the lobby of Azteca Theater was home to the iPacific Gallery  while preparations were being made to open the main auditorium.

In this view of the ticket booth has several interesting features.  I replaced the ticket booth glass with plexiglass and made a communication opening with the grill form a computer fan.  The American flag covers an ugly grill that made the door window secure.  The closed sign indicates the gallery was closed. It was open weekends and on Art Hops.  The original round windows in the theater doors were enhanced with auspicious Chinese symbols etched into the glass. 


PHOTOGRAPH BY: Luis Sinco / Los Angeles Times

"Outtakes | Luis Sinco
A photographer may take dozens of shots for an assignment, and they’re usually edited down to just a few images for use in the newspaper and online. Details and moments significant to the photographer often don’t make the cut. Outtakes presents a selection of those images."
