Хотите как в Лос-Анджелесе?

Тогда вам надо пожить, как фотографу, сделавшему эти снимки, десять лет с этим народом.
Про "Скидроу" этого города я уже писал и фотки казал.
Но хорошего, как известно, много не бывает.

Так шта... enjoy the pics, станичники.

Фотограф, который провел десять лет в печально известном Лос-анджелесском центре бездомных Skid Row, показал свою работу. Нищенские условия, с которыми ежедневно сталкиваются почти 5000 жителей центральной части Лос-Анджелеса, показаны в серии шокирующих черно - белых фотографий.
Фотограф "Чемодан Джо" (Suitcase Joe) провел десять лет, знакомясь с бездомными и фотографируя их людей и теперь он выпустил книгу под названием "Тротуарные чемпионы".  В трущобах Лос-Анджелеса они живут в палатках, тянущихся длинной чередой в центре Лос-Анджелеса, За эти годы Джо завоевал доверие этих опустившихся на дно созданий и завязал дружеские отношения в сообществе бездомных, крупнейшем в Америке, что позволило ему получить беспрецедентный доступ к документированию их повседневной жизни.

A series of photographs taken on Los Angeles' 'Skid Row' - where the city's largest community of homeless people are based - have been released by street photographer Suitcase Joe in a new book.
