Nonfiction. Photography. California Studies. "I'm Photographing LA—All of it" is Kevin McCollister's self-proclaimed lifetime project. Determined to walk the city, perhaps one of the most determinedly unwalkable cities in the world, seeing to make a record of its mostly unseen face with an unstaged straightforwardness that disarms the popular mythologies of the place, McCollister finds a new city, the city that is Los Angeles, all of it, one image at a time. "Long after the bars have emptied, the taco trucks have shut down, and the citizenry are safe in their beds, Kevin McCollister prowls the streets of LA, brooding, silent, relentless, with his Canon 40 at his side, waiting for the cityscape to whisper, 'Take my picture'"—Lewis MacAdams.
