The Los Angeles River Photo Adventure with Peter Bennett
The Los Angeles River runs over 50 miles through the heart of a metro area populated by10 million people. Yet in a place where water is such a precious commodity, hardly any of its inhabitants know the river’s history, where it begins or ends, or its current function. In fact, the patchwork of governments and agencies that control the river make it almost impossible to access it without trespassing. No other American city has so completely turned its back on such a resource. Most see it as a hideous scar on the landscape, a polluted dystopian highway through the heart of urban darkness. Yet, it is also a rich cultural canvas of striking visuals and unlimited potentials.
