Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One of the most visited real cities in the world, Los Angeles is a place with many centers, but none are more drenched in history and diversity than its Downtown. Commissioned by the Los Angeles Public Library, photojournalist Marissa Roth has captured the heart of the City of Angels in photographs that at once point to its bright and dark sides. More than just palm trees and sunsets, Roths black-and-white photos define the Real City as only an artistic genius can. Roth visited the homes of downtown residents, and found a woman praying at her Shinto shrine. Blocks away, demonstrators took on the LAPD at the Democratic National Convention, and Roth shot the action. With lyrical text by award-winning author D.J. Waldie, this is more than a photo bookit grabs a culture and exposes it to the world.
