New Deal (collaboration with photographer Jürgen Beck)

The correspondence began over email. He had read some of her writing, she was impressed by his ability to capture something of L.A. -- something that's simultaneously nostalgic and fleeting.

Wendy Gilmartin's writing and Beck's photography are to be presented in a forthcoming publication by Beck, titled, New Deal (Jungle Books) (http://www.juergenbeck.com/new-deal/).
