Manoukian, an accountant, lost his re-election bid after two terms on the council but continues to be involved in the photo project. “Who would have thought a two-term incumbent born in Beirut, Lebanon, and a guy who was born and raised in Glendale of Jewish faith would be standing there working on this project together?” Drayman said. “Of course, it didn’t surprise us because we’ve been friends for some time.” Manoukian could not be reached for comment. The City Council will pick 100 photos for a book chronicling a day in the life of Glendale; plans are to print 2,000 copies. Proceeds from book sales will go to the library’s special collections division. The goal “is to have a diverse range of photos that represent Glendale in all of its aspects – good, bad, warts and all,” Hunt-Coffey said. To spread the word, the library contacted local high school and college photography teachers in hopes of getting their students and students’ families involved. The library has several requirements for contest participants, including that they get a signed release form from anyone they photograph. More information on the contest is available at www.ci.glendale.ca.us/photoproject. [email protected] 818-546-3304160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

GLENDALE – Residents are being asked to help document 24 hours in the life of Glendale on Saturday as part of a photo project designed to unite the community. In a conversation after a City Council campaign event earlier this year, then-candidates John Drayman, who is Jewish, and Rafi Manoukian, who is Armenian, came up with the idea to try to stem divisiveness between ethnic groups. “I think we have a lot more in common than we all realize….So this was a way of reminding ourselves what we share, rather than what our differences are, by looking at Glendale through one camera lens,” Drayman said. The project is being run by the Glendale Public Library, which is inviting residents and anyone who works in the city to “take their best shot” Saturday and photograph anything they see within city limits.
