Some Place Chronicles is a series of creative placemaking projects set in four unincorporated communities within the Second District of Los Angeles County. Numerous and varied engagements with the people who live and work in these communities have culminated in four unique books—each containing explorations, documentation, and pragmatic and poetic testimonies of what has been and dreams of what might be—created by four different artists/collectives. The chronicle of East Rancho Dominguez is authored by artist Thomas Lawson.
