Katie Salisbury is proud of her Chinese heritage (she’s fourth generation) and curious about the ways in which immigration has played out in the Chinese-American community. For a place to start, in 2016 she began getting to know the people who work in the popular and ubiquitous Chinese restaurants that are the mainstay of Chinatown neighborhoods from her own in Brooklyn, to Lisa Derrick Fine Arts in Los Angeles. That’s where Thank You Enjoy! has brought Salisbury’s evocative and empathetic photojournalism to the L.A. stop on its TED talk-fueled exhibition travel schedule; and where Saturday night’s closing reception offers one last look before the show continues on its way.
Lisa Derrick Fine Arts, 961 Chung King Road, Chinatown; Closing Reception: Sat., Aug., 24, 6-8 p.m.; free.(424) 835-2793, lisaderrick.com.
