The Neighborhoods

Collage with 3D feel: Against the backdrop of a freeway overpass and a street lit up by car lights and street lamps, a Latino man in a baseball cap holds up posters for sale, wearing a backpack strapped to his chest. Against the backdrop of a giant neon movie marquee sign labeled “EL CAPITAN,” an Asian woman walks resolutely forward, gripping a coat and a handbag.
Formerly an empty, bucolic space, Los Angeles is now a disorienting megalopolis.

Capturing the nuances, moods and rhythms of America’s most multicultural city, LOS ANGELES NOW evokes a transformation that may well be a blueprint for the future of cities around the world.
