Crocker Avenue, Los Angeles
As I drove through Skid Row one Saturday morning, I saw this woman with striking red shoes. I stopped to ask her if I could take some pictures, and she was very pleased. We were on Crocker near 4th street, and i noticed that she was meticulously gathering bits of trash and other objects from the street, and setting them on fire in a little charcoal grill she had on the sidewalk. She burned the mattress she is pictured laying on the night before.
