Zen Sekizawa has been working as a photographer, director and artist for over two decades in her hometown of Los Angeles. She is second generation Angeleno and fourth generation Japanese American.

Since earning her BFA in Photography from Art Center College of Design in 1999, Zen’s practice has grown into exploring, critiquing and acting on the intersection of art, politics and community care.

Her collaborations span various disciplines including a book by Hesse Press, entitled You and I See Why; a furniture and design collective called Mano Ya, with artist Mario Correa,and creative direction and photography for Niki Nakayama of n/naka Restaurant. Finally, she has just begun work on a feature length documentary on the subject of The Atomic Cafe, her family’s legendary punk rock institution.

She is a member of J-Town Action and Solidarity and works directly with community organizations including We the Unhoused and Chinatown Community for Equitable Development.
