These photographs document hidden water run-offs in a transitional urban zone near the Los Angeles river. Over the course of a year they change with the seasons. In spring, they are lush and green. In the summer, they dry up completely. Aside from the natural element, nightly the gangs tag these spaces. Then during daytime, the city workers paint over the graffiti. There is a continuing dispute around these microcosms, over entitlements and space.
