Another View of Los Angeles

Eric Morris has been busting Los Angeles transportation myths with his L.A.: Fact or Fiction posts lately, which may have changed the way you view the City of Angels.

Photographer Mathieu Young brings us yet another view of Los Angeles, via GOOD magazine. Young took a 20 mile walk around the city, snapping photos of everyone he came across.

    I’m all for walking and photos, but that’s not even a tenth of Los Angeles, the city, much less the county. It’s like walking around Manhattan and saying you know New York.

    LA is the Valley, it’s Watts, Chatsworth, Tuhunga, and all the way down to San Pedro! LA so much more than the northwest edges of the main basin.

    This actually makes a point about LA and cars: Mathieu Young could only see a tiny bit of the city on foot.

    Yeah, and I notice he assiduously avoided downtown and South Central. Essentially we get to see how people in Encino and Hollywood live. Real balanced.

    The goal wasn’t to capture every type of person and area in Los Angeles – I think that would be quite a task for one guy. Of course he avoided areas where he might feel unsafe, walking with equipment – wouldn’t you? These are great pictures!
