Photographs by Anthony Hernandez. Introduction by M. G. Lord.
Nazraeli Press, Tucson, 2005. 80 pp., 45 four-color illustrations, 12x13".
For nearly a year and a half, Hernandez walked the basin of the Los Angeles River, photographing the changes that occur to the waterway as levels fluctuate in tune with the dry and rainy seasons. For Hernandez, it was a return to a childhood activity, having grown up in nearby Boyle Heights, a mainly Latino neighborhood of East L.A. As a child, he would play in and around the massive concrete ditches, discovering discarded junk and making mischief. They proved a source of endless opportunity, tucked away, out of parental sight. Used by the homeless when weather permits, the basins are a bit of a catchall, collecting trash and trinkets alike. This too was part of Hernandez’s overall project, to photograph this natural element winding its way through the unnatural life of the city. - Darius Himes Read Publisher's Description.
