First Frenchwoman Geraldine Freyesen, now living in Los Angeles, got a quarter Skid Row while working on a documentary project. This area is considered one of the poorest in the city, and then wanders a lot of anti-social elements that make this place very dangerous. However, it captures Geraldine so much that she decided to stay here after the shooting - to wander through the streets, mingle with the locals. Of course, the photographer always on the alert and know when to show my camera and when to wait. And among the homeless, many shelters for them and shabby one-bedroom apartment she met amazing people, demonstrating the most incredible combination of street fashion.
