Some are making fortunes along the route; others are just trying to survive to see another day. Patrick Ecclesine captures the city’s dreams, dreamers, and, at times, nightmares using the most famous boulevard in the world as the setting for his photographs. The individuals featured range from the famous (Governor Schwarzenegger, Larry King, Fernando Valenzuela) to the unknown (a street vendor, an undocumented worker, a bus driver) to the unwanted (a homeless man, a single mother on welfare, a drug addict). Other archetypal Angeleno figures—from a television weather-girl sensation to a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon to surfers in Pacific Palisades to the eccentric and outlandish denizens of the Sunset Strip—stand side by side in these pages, capturing the eclectic nature of the City of Angels and its most colorful thoroughfare, Sunset Boulevard.

    The colors are beautiful although many of the portraits are too contrived for my taste. However, what I love most about this collection is how accurately it captures the personalities in each neighborhood as you travel Sunset from Downtown to the ocean. He's done an amazing job choosing an extremely wide array of characters that will always define Los Angeles to me.

    If you ever want to see a cross section of a city told from the perspective of individuals...this is about as good as you can get... Pictures of everyone from bouncers at the Viper Room to migrant day laborers to the Mayor of West Hollywood... More than just a coffee table book!
