I am posting this photo to try and help promote a new documentary by Pras of the Fugees.
I took this photograph a few months ago, there is also a color version of this pic in my gallery.
The title of the documentary is SKID ROW and it's in select theatres now.
"ON ANY GIVEN DAY THERE ARE 80,000 HOMELESS IN L.A"
"11,000 LIVE ON SKID ROW"
"OVER 5,000 ARE UNDER 18"
Eight miles from Beverly Hills, Skid Row has the highest rate of violent crimes on the west coast.
I take a lot of my photos in the heart of skid row.
I knew it was dangerous on Skid Row, but I didn't realize it was that BAD!
Saw the original a while ago, I think you deleted them you said. Good luck!

Thanks for the link to the trailer..those stats are depressing...good luck with the project.'There is no point pressing the shutter unless you are making some caustic comment on the incongruities of life. That is what photography is all about. It is the only reason for doing it.'......Philip Jones Griffiths
