Florence Milo studies photography at a local community college. She is a cool girl with strong aesthetic opinions. I had to work at times to get her to crack a smile for the camera, but in the end, I was happy to photograph such an elegant beauty. Florence and I spent a late Sunday morning at Venice High School. The place holds nostalgia for me since I lived in the neighborhood for years upon moving to Los Angeles. I could always tell that the kids at Venice High did not have top-dollar funding, yet I never got the impression that it was home to as much hate as portrayed in American History X. Our city is often over-dramatized. To live and die in LA.
