Seeing Los Angeles: A Different Look at a Different City

 

Guy Bennett & Béatrice Mousli, eds., Seeing Los Angeles: A Different Look at a Different City

 

How do you fit seventeen million people, eight thousand square miles, eighty-eight languages, and just as many religions, cuisines, traditions, etc., into a single poem? How do you present accurate facts and figures for a place in constant flux: three million newcomers each year, somewhat fewer deserters, constant earth movements, recurring natural disasters, and the resultant, inevitable shifts in physical and demographic boundaries?

Guy Bennett is the author of several works of poetry, non-poetry, and numerous translations. His writing has been featured in magazines and anthologies in the United States and abroad, and presented in poetry and arts festivals internationally. Publisher of Mindmade Books (formerly Seeing Eye Books) and co-editor of Otis Books | Seismicity Editions, he lives in Los Angeles and teaches at Otis College of Art and Design.

Born in Orleans, France in 1966, Beatrice Mousli in the author of many books including Valery Larbaud (1998), Max Jacob (2005), and Philippe Soupault. Mousli has collaborated with her husband, Guy Bennett, on many projects, most recently Beyond the Iconic, an exhibition of contemporary photographs of Paris in the Los Angeles Public Library’s Getty Gallery. Mousli currently resides in Los Angeles, where she teaches at USC and directs the The Francophone Research and Resource Center.
