A Zine documenting the Venice Beach boardwalk and its local characters who are fighting off the forthcoming technology companies who threaten to turn Venice into Silicone Beach.
'Mostly everyday I will walk from 11am to Noon and photograph the boardwalk and find that's the lucky hour 11:11 as I always get my best photos then.'
'Venice has its long standing characters including 'The Tree Man' who comes to the beach as a different tree and claims his mother is Mother nature and his father is King Poseidon. Musician Harry Perry has been a staple on the beach who is known for inline skating and strumming a electric guitar with a smile on his face. Others don't last that long and generally they will disappear after 2-4 weeks as the allure of earning a few bucks a day having your photo taken loses its appeal realizing Venice Beach isn't for the weak at heart.'
'I have photographed on the boardwalk on and off since 2010 but the last year I have tried to spend at least 3 days on the boardwalk every week. I have noticed a general shift in the boardwalk especially since Google and Snapchat have moved in on Venice Beach and that homelessness and mental health problem has escalated dramatically in the last year.'
