Gerhard Steidl: “I generally like it when a photographer engages a subject over many years. In this case, the book could hardly be more timely, given the state of race relations in America today.” Dana Lixenberg initially travelled to South Central Los Angeles in 1992 to cover the Rodney King race riots; her gradual and increased engagement with the area, and with its communities – in particular that of the Imperial Courts housing project in Watts – form the basis of this striking and unique monograph.
