His work is based on what he saw and experienced growing up in East LA and Boyle Heights as the child of Mexican immigrants. A lot of Hernandez’s work could be described as “street photography,” capturing the hard faces and hard lives of a gritty LA; but there are also landscapes featuring tire shops and abstract photos of contemporary ruins.
