“"One-shot newsprint publication tells stories of 22 people in the East San Gabriel Valley. It was produced by two journalists (Fonografia Collective) on behalf of the LA County Regional Planning Dept. and 10,000 copies will be distributed for free around the SGV. I'm in it."
We are finishing up our collaboration with the Los Angeles County Department of Regional Planning, called “A People’s Map.” For the past year, we’ve explored the rich heritage and identity of the East San Gabriel Valley region, collecting unique, hidden, untold, and forgotten histories and stories about the region.
Soon, a newspaper featuring the many personal stories we found will be available throughout the East San Gabriel Valley, in three languages.
Since last summer 2018, we’ve been building a project in collaboration with the LA County Department of Regional Planning, exploring the rich heritage and identity of LA County’s East San Gabriel Valley. This summer, we will be sharing residents’ hidden, untold, or forgotten histories of this unique region through public events, a newspaper, a book, and a website.

Once one of Southern California’s most important rail yards, this site will soon become the next urban California State Park, joining a patchwork of other river-adjacent green spaces that are shaping the course of LA River revitalization. Through personal interviews with people who have worked, lived and otherwise made their marks at this post-industrial site, Fonografia Collective explores some of LA’s biggest challenges, and speculates about what change at this site might mean for the rest of the city. Written and co-produced by Ruxandra Guidi and Clockshop, edited by Ibby Caputo and with music by Luis Guerra.
