1. One-Eight-Seven


    from I Am Los Angeles - Joris Debeij / Added

    When a murder goes unsolved for some time, Sal LaBarbera will commonly receive the phone calls from a victim's friends and family, inquiring about a case on the birthday or the anniversary of their loved ones' death. Sal is a detective in the homicide division of South Los Angeles, one of the most infamous urban areas in the United States. He's seen thousands of cases since joining the division in 1986. At that time in the city's history, Los Angeles was experiencing a crime epidemic brought by rock-cocaine. The area still comprises about 40% of the homicide activity in Los Angeles, but these days the number of homicides is at a record low owing in part to the LAPD's gang intervention plans and work with the community. There's no question that murder is a senseless, incomprehensible act of violence, and one of the ugliest of crimes committed by humankind. To be impacted by such an event is utterly shocking and tragic, and for those who've experienced this loss, a full emotional recovery will always be out of reach. Few will understand this as intimately as a homicide detective. In their service to the community, they drift in and out of circles of grief and loss created by a victim's death. Nonetheless, they must also find their way back to their own lives and families each day. Sal joined the fire brigade as a volunteer when he was just a teenager. There he learned that while life is precious, it can be ended brutally over a minor occurrence. Everyone in the homicide division has his or her own way of coping with this realization. Sal, now 27 years older than he was when he started out in homicide, finds joy in the littlest joke or a smile, and in spending time with his daughter. Still, to compensate for the degree to which his own life is occupied by the death of others, he must perpetually seek access to a certain balance; a way to be wholly, and happily present in the moments of his own life.

        "Tooth for an Eye: A Chorography of Violence in Orleans Parish" is the latest project from Louisiana based photographer Deborah Luster. The collection, recently featured at the Jack Shainman Gallery in New York, are haunting images of homicide sites in New Orleans. Luster found these sites in the local Times-Picayune newspaper and lugged her 8 x 10 Deardorff camera through the sweltering streets of New Orleans capturing what the Shaniman Gallery calls "the dizzyingly empty space at the core of violence". The sites range from those of national headline making homicides, to unknown killings in back alleyways, dive bars and the forgotten edges of town. They document a cycle of violence plaguing one of America's most beloved cities. The limited edition book can be purchased from Twin Palms Publishers: http://tinyurl.com/4nro4c6 Produced by Matt Beagle and the Kitchen Sisters for the Hidden World of Girls.
