Untold LA

Photographing the Astonishing Homes of LA's West Adams District

In 2012 photographer Jett Loe encountered the forgotten Los Angeles District of West Adams, the original wealthy area of town, the “Beverly Hills before Beverly Hills.”  Filled with an astonishing collection of Victorian and Craftsman homes in vibrant, diverse neighborhoods West Adams proved to be a revelation.  Following a successful Kickstarter campaign Jett spent two years producing this mammoth delight of a book that documents the variety of homes and people in the area.

Totaling a fully interactive 365 pages with 500 photos, 70 oral history audio clips from West Adams residents and two hours of behind-the-scenes video commentary, Untold LA is a massive treasure trove for lovers of Los Angeles, American history and architecture.

Final Batch of Calendars Going Out and a Little Break for the Holidays

The blog will be a bit quiet over the next couple of weeks as am leaving sunny, yet chilly, Los Angeles for the sunny yet even chillier environs of New Mexico. 

But rest assured the final batch of calendars will be going out today. If you're in the University Park Post Office this afternoon you'll see me sending off the calendars to Untold LA supporters near and far - as always so appreciative of all of your help!
