About Everything

The Los Angeles River is shaped by the arid climate of Southern California. During the dry months, June through October, it's little more than a creek, winding torpidly through miles of flood-proof concrete. But between November and May, when heavy rains hit, it rises, swelling against its man-made borders, fed by storm drains that lead sewage out to sea. From January 2003 to May 2004, photographer Anthony Hernandez traveled the Los Angeles River Basin, recording what he saw - which, as the title of the book suggests, was more or less Everything. For Hernandez, exploring the river was exploring his own past.

As a boy growing up in Boyle Heights, a largely Latino neighborhood in East Los Angeles, he played in the concrete pool or, as he puts it, did "mischief," blowing up torches of railroad in its tunnel-shaped, bottle-smashing storm drains. against its walls. Significantly, Hernandez does not stage his photographs; it records what it finds. In the river, this mainly means items left behind by homeless people (who camp there in hot weather) or items lost in remote storm drains. "Everything" is printed in a first edition of 1000 copies. Introduction by Mr. G. Lord.
