LOS ANGELES, Calif – In 1992 I took photographs during the Civil Unrest of 1992 in Los Angeles and I witnessed the damage and destruction first hand that lasted three days. Although many site that the rebellion lasted for six days, by the fourth day the National Guard was in place and all looting, arson and rebellious activity was over. During these days, I captured many interesting images on my 35 mm Olympus. Five years later in 1997 I revisited those some places and shoot more photos.
