About The Artwork

This is my dog "lefty boy" who was 4 months old at the time of this portrait, June 1989 and shot on the beach with a Canon AE1 35mm film camera. My salty little puppy was so eager to please even while posing for me on this day. *** Shot about 1/2 mile down the beach from where Taylor Swift now has a big house on the hill, but of course this was years before she moved to town. *** limited edition prints of 10 signed and dated on back in pencil.

Hi I'm Anthony "Moda" Monterotti , photographer in Los Angeles, Ca. I am the photographer in June 2014 while doing street photography work in Los Angeles, Ca. and shooting the Actor Jonah Hill as he then assaulted me with a homophobic slur. He called me a "faggot" and then said to me, " suck my dick you faggot". You can look all this up on TMZ, the link https://www.tmz.com/2014/06/03/jonah-hill-homophobic-slur-paparazzi-video/ The disappointing and sad part about it all is that Jonah Hill made a public apology filled with lies about me to try and garner sympathy and get a pass for his homophobic outburst. It worked for him and to this day he has never apologized to me. here is the TMZ link to this event: https://www.tmz.com/2014/06/03/jonah-hill-homophobic-slur-paparazzi-video/ Moving forward, I'm a serious photographer and artist. I studied Communication Arts Media at Framingham University Located just outside, Boston, Massachusetts and graduated in 1993, Cum Laude. I moved to Los Angeles, Ca. in 1995. I have a fundamental interest in the random people I meet on the streets of Los Angeles. A street portrait is very challenging but when you capture a thin slice of someone's essence, esp. after only a brief and random encounter, it becomes a lasting and fulfilling event. I normally ride thru the streets on a bicycle bc Los Angeles is so spread out. Riding a bicycle is a fantastic way to see things . Like others have said; recognizing those individuals who are overlooked by society feels like a bit of my personal legend. Street images don't usually make great wall art but I just loved being out there documenting with people. And in 1995 I began shooting head shots for actors using a Canon AE1 film camera. I have also done many weddings, VIP Events, portraits, and PR Images for celebrities. I have also shot well over 10,000 college portraits throughout Southern California . However my real passion was always on the streets shooting random people. I had 5 bicycles stolen and luckily onlyattacked on the streets once in 17 years of shooting street images. I shot my first photograph in the first grade with a plastic Diana camera that my Father gave to me. I still have my very first photo i shot with that Diana Camera in 1969 of two school girls running away from me in the school yard.
