Drug arrest Los Angeles, California

Drug arrest Los Angeles, California

In  1989 I spent four month in Los Angeles during which, I spent six weeks going around with various units of the Los Angeles Police Department. The featured photo is one taken whilst going around with the narcotics department. The Police officers are checking that the girl hadn’t swallowed any drugs  – see the officer on the rights is also sticking out her tongue. Photographs from this body of work appeared in magazines and newspapers in the UK and around the world.

This image was shot using a Nikon FM2 camera 35mm lens, on  Fujichrome Provia 100F professional

I’ll post more from my time spent in LA again.

Thank you for reading this blog.
