The photos in Promised Land were taken between 1981 and 1992, mostly in Los Angeles county. Many of them were made on Broadway, a major north/south artery running through downtown Los Angeles. I was a young, enthusiastic street shooter beginning to find my way in the tradition of Frank, Winogrand, Levitt and all the other great photographic artists who had inspired me. I spent a lot of time walking up and down streets that initially seemed exotic, gradually becoming familiar, until I knew them as a sort of home. These times helped to shape me as a photographer and as a person. I’ve grown older and maybe a bit more jaded since those days, but I will always fondly remember that time and the discoveries I made wandering through the city of Angels.
