Camilo José Vergara takes pictures of the same urban building or street over several years. When he began 10828 S. Avalon Blvd., LA in 1980, the building housed a humble African American Baptist Church. After years of shifting fortunes, the original structure was replaced with a residential home catering to the neighborhood's booming Central American community. Vergara's time lapse photographs capture the visual evidence of social, cultural and economic change in America's inner cities.
