William Galindo is a Los Angeles based photographer. These photos are from an upcoming book, God Came Through Here the Other Day, which captures the lives of a community under the Sixth Street Bridge.
This is part one of an ongoing series.
I found my way to the Sixth Street Bridge after the city announced it was going to be demolished. The tunnel wasn’t closed off yet, and people still lived there. I shot 800 rolls of film in a year and a half. I would have never stopped. I could keep shooting forever. But after the bridge came down, piece by piece, everyone moved away. So I stopped.
I took a picture of my friend Broadway's gunshot wound when we first met. He didn't want me to write about how it happened in the book, he was a little paranoid.
CJ sets up his tent everyday. Every now and then cops make them take down the tens. He felt special and appreciated it. I never saw him again. Everyone was there together but they were also alone at the same time. Everyone did their own thing, kept to themselves
