About the Book
If you work in South Central L.A. you often wonder why the world only sees gray gangs and drug dealers. Easy. They sell in the movies - the archetypal bad guys. South Central doesn't look like that! So please enjoy these very real photographs of the merchants and street painters - and graffiti artists who inspire each other to tell all on the walls, benches, trash cans and any space - merchants and bangers alike - in an unparelleled display of publicbess! This book is to honor the real merchants and street painters of South Central, Pico and West Adams and give America a more accurate view of how these 'backstreets' look! Enjoy!
