When I came across the photo series Nobody Walks in LA, I was speechless. Photographer Alex Scott spent two years capturing photographs of a completely deserted city for a project that was 10 years in the making.
A picture may say 1,000 words, though there is possibly another story lurking just outside the frame. This is certainly the case with the images featured in "The First with the Latest! Aggie Underwood, the Los Angeles Herald, and the Sordid Crimes of a City."
