Chinatown LA. (PT 1)

An integral ingredient in my lifestyle work is authenticity. The ability to take everyday moments and make new images from them. This journey of sort in my commercial world has fueled my curiosity and fascination about life itself and culture. This curiosity took me to one of the most interestingly beautiful places I've visited. Chinatown LA

San Francisco Chinatown was established in 1848. It is the oldest Chinatown in North America and the largest Chinese community outside Asia.

It was really hard to believe that I had not left the US and flown to Asia. Definitely one the richest places of culture I've experienced.

San Francisco Chinatown restaurants are considered to be the birthplace of Westernized Chinese cuisine such as Chop Suey and Dim Sum, which they introduced and made popular with their Dim Sum tea houses.

Chinatown is an enclave that continues to retain its own customs, therefore remaining a hotspot for tourists, like us, who want to experience a taste of the Asian culture.
