In the final episode of the “On the Streets” series, Lisa Biagiotti explains why she decided to explore the issue of homelessness in Los Angeles. She runs into Wanda Gray, who is on her way to the local recycling center. They meet Odell, Gray’s old friend from skid row, and talk about what’s going on in the neighborhood. Pepper, the “mayor of skid row,” imparts some street wisdom to cap the series.

ON THE STREETS is both a video series and a 72-minute documentary on homelessness in Southern California

In this video series, Lisa Biagiotti sets out to put faces to the statistics. But ‘the homeless’ are united only in that they have no place to live. She meets people on the streets, learns about their experiences and explores the issues they face. Biagiotti is collaborating with Times reporters and our data team to plot where to take her camera next.
