Defining LA, One Person at a Time

The “I Am Los Angeles” video series was created by transplanted Dutch journalist Joris Debij who apparently was in search of the answer to the question,”Who Is Los Angeles?”

So it turns out Los Angeles is Sean Martin, a fixed-gear cyclist; and Fallen Fruit, the nonprofit that tracks the city’s free fruit-picking opportunities; and Jules Dervaes, the planet-saving urban homesteader.

As Dervaes says, “We don’t fit the LA mold.” Maybe that’s the motto of the series…because when outsiders think of LA there are the obvious stereotypes. But if you actually spend time there you realize that is just a sliver of the population, and there’s a lot more.

(And if you shoot, edit or compose, they are looking for collaborators too.)
