Archival LAPD Prints at Paris Photo


At this weekend’s Paris Photo in Los Angeles, lost LAPD crime negatives discovered in downtown Los Angeles will be on display. The photos date back to 1925 and depict crime scenes, criminals, robbery notes and victims. This is the first public exhibition of the photos, which were selected from a repository of over a million. Ranging from $325-$700, profits from the prints will help fund the preservation of the LAPD archives.

Paris Photo will be held at Paramount Studios from April 25-27.
