From the publisher: "Anthony Hernandez has become known over the last twenty years as a creator of a unique blend of social commentary, urban documentary, and landscape photography. This is a book of portraits--not of people, but of places: the habitats of the homeless in Los Angeles. Hernandez paints a vivid picture of American social irresponsibility in the volatile setting of an urban wasteland."
