About the artist
:::::::::::::::::::
A native Angeleno, Kevin Break picked up his first camera at age 15, and soon after immersed himself in film and video by assisting a wide range of photographers and directors. In 1990, Kevin took pilgrimage to Madrid, Spain where he initiated his freelance career specializing in fashion photography. Upon his return to Los Angeles, he opened up his own studio downtown where he fell in love with the LA River bridges. Merging his fashion experience with his affinity for this historic collection of bridges, Kevin produced a series of works that eventually led him to focus on the architectural design of the structure itself. The monumental bridges – as photographed by Break within their environment at distinct moments of the day – have been featured in select newspapers and other outlets that include the BBC, Friends of the LA River, City of LA Bureau of Engineering and The Los Angeles Conservancy.

<meta name="description" content="Kevin Break author of www.bridgesofla.com is the bible of the bridges of Los Angeles, providing news and features about projects, products and people in construction, architecture and engineering in the downtown Los Angeles area" quoted from LA City's website, "Just twenty years after the 6th Street Viaduct was constructed the cement supports began to disintegrate. Over the years, various costly restorative methods have been tried, but none have worked to correct the problem.

Constructed in 1932, the 6th Street Viaduct is an important engineering landmark in the City of Los Angeles. It is one of a set of fourteen historic Los Angeles River crossing structures. With an overall length of 3,500 ft. it is the longest of these structures. It is a critical east-west transportation link between LA Art District and Boyle Heights and has been determined to be eligible for listing in the National Register.

The concrete in the 6th Street Viaduct has been subject to a chemical reaction, known as Alkai Silica Reaction (ASR) causing significant deterioration of the structure./>
