Los Angeles is a city of dualities—sunshine and noir, coastline beaches and urban grit, natural beauty and suburban sprawl, the obvious and the hidden. This book reveals these dualities and more, in images captured by master photographers such as Bruce Davidson, Lee Friedlander, Julius Shulman, and Garry Winogrand, as well as many younger artists, including Matthew Brandt, Katy Grannan, and Alex Israel. Taken together, these individual views by more than 130 artists form a collective vision of a place where myth and reality are often indistinguishable. Proceeds from the sale of the book benefit Inner-City Arts, which brings arts education to elementary, middle, and high school students.
