Hello my name is Yoshawn Smith, a Husband, Father and Artist here in the beautiful and gritty city of Los Angeles, CA. Born and raised in South Central Los Angeles, I was around many different cultures such as gangs, dance, graffiti, music, and even fashion. This city is built off of the working man and the outside of the box thinkers, and those who just wanted to stand out anyway they can, even if they aren’t from the city. I set out at the beginning of the year to capture these people while on my way to work during the afternoons and mornings in Downtown Los Angeles. Not having a proper place for these photos made it difficult, so this is my attempt to make that space a permanent one.
Welcome to “Sartorial L.A. where I will be showing Fashion portraits of finely dressed individuals on the streets of Los Angeles, CA.
