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.

Untold LA on the Huffington Post

Nice little writeup over the weekend in the Huffington Post on Untold LA. Nice to have them feature the project as they were one of the first to write about it when the Kickstarter was launched.

They've asked me if I'd like to blog regularly for them in their 'Home' section; am looking forward to seeing what I can come up with in the coming months - hopefully we can educate some folks about this cultural treasure we have here in LA!
