The Los Angeles River’s overlooked anglers

Featuring the images of Roberto (Bear) Guerra, this piece by Miles Griffis shows how the LA River provides sustenance to those living along its banks, and the resiliency of a river that flows through a sprawling city.

Nearly 9,000 of the estimated 66,000 unhoused people in Los Angeles County live along the river, where they’ve set up camps and shelters — even small gardens with fruit trees, bushes, and terraced agriculture, hidden off its concrete banks.
